Re: Doing a fall cutout tomorrow...thoughts in what to do with them?
"the honey will be mine, once we get them removed"...
to me thats a bad sign right out of the shoot. I do a lot of cutout removals and generally the goal is to remove them safely and keep them alive. In order to do that they will need the honey a lot more than you will I'm afraid. Your odds of cutting them out this late in the game having them survive are slim. They have already prepared one brood nest for winter and won't have time to do that again. I always try to preserve the cutout genetics and not combine them.
