Hi rickalbig, I agree, the ONLY thing that matters to the female/s are the CONDITIONS inside the little box, not whether WE (or they) know it`s not a real termite mound!
If it bears just a TINY resemblance in appearance (being an object on the ground, not under) to the object they usually nest in in most of their range, it`s got to be worth a try.
Clearly, it works VERY successfully, and more to the point, REPEATEDLY over many years, and BEST OF ALL, no adult female was lost during the whole time crocdoc`s used the method. So why change, just to prove a point, and put the animal at possible great risk?
Losing females after just a few successful nestings/years is FAILURE in my opinion, not "very successful", as was stated...
