    Hey blammer, I got mine done, tried it out last weekend. It worked just fine
    It was a small hive, took about 2 hours, got the Queen. And was home at
    1:00pm.

    Oh I did kill some bees, just about a tablespoon full, when i pulled the bottom cover off.

    Got another one to go do sat. We'll see how this one goes, from the last one.

    Thanks for the help.

    Default Re: The awesome Beevac

    Have a hive I am trying to get out of a pillar right now with a nuc placed on top. However got a call for another hive thats taken up residence in a stucco wall outside a bar. I think I will attempt to make one of these tubular style vacs, tomorrow. I have to agree that with the length of the tube compared to the small vacs has to make a huge difference in casualties.

    Smile Re: The awesome Beevac

    Hi all, this is my first time here and also a newbee at this honeybee hobby. First, I would like to give blammer the credit for the idea of using concrete tubes. Not knowing any sizes, went to Lowe's picked up the tubes and went to work. The following is the link with picture of what I came up with

    If anyone is interested in details and more pictures let me know will be glad to share.

    Default The awesome Beevac construction question.

    This question can be for anyone who has built one of these. I am going to try and put one of these together and I was wondering what size people made their tubes. Did you use the full length of the tubes or did you shorten them? I was thinking about halfing them so it would be more manageable and I could make two "cartridges" out of each 8" tube.

    Also, what seemed to work best to attach the plywood to the tubes? I'm assuming just some caulk. Thanks in advance for the help!
