    Re: Found bees

    Maybe they are mine that decided to take off Sunday. :) That would be quite a flight!

    Re: Rose Hive Method

    Those were my thoughts when I watched the videos. There is so much contradicting information in the ether. I'll continue to watch and learn.

    Reconstruction?

    Assuming you have a cut-out in a structure and material must be removed. Is reconstruction and repair normally a part of the job? Or, is it left to the owner?
