    Re: Quick Ground removal

    1) they want the bees gone ASAP 2) no digging is allowed.

    I've never had a good answer to 'Why did that swarm cluster where it did?' (or similar)

  11. Re: Does 5 Gallons of water and 50lbs of sugar sound about right for 1.1?

    water weighs 8.34 pounds per gallon

    6 gallons = 50.04 pounds

    or 42 pounds to 5 gallons

    or 33 pounds to 4 gallons

    Just pull one of the frames on the sides

    Very carefully
