    Thanks, Scott!
    My roof is pretty shallow, but will still handle everything but the smoker, and I have almost stopped using that darn thing altogether...more trouble than it is worth.
    Not sure why I ever used it...over time I have found myself pulling frames out for inspections, checking on the queen, etc., and forgetting to wear gloves or veil...haven't been stung yet.
    With the TBH, I think I need it even less.
    Scott, your earlier advice to me was the reason I tried the TBH this year; I appreciate the inspiration.

    Scott,
    I emailed you some pics a while back of the wild swarm I caught...and asked some questions about your TBHs after looking at your pics.
    Did I hear somewhere that you moved up north?

    David,
    Yeah I got bees. A LOT of bees, I am a commercial operator now with first product to sell in 2007.

    RBar,
    I gave a lot of people advice over the years and I can't quite remember specifically what I advised you on.

    I moved to Iowa from Florida last fall. Sold my bees there, bought lumber for 500 TBH hives, and am going to pick up the bees in 1 week in missori. I have been real busy. That's a lot of lumber don'tcha know.
