    Default I don't see drones. Do you see drones? I think I did see a bee dance or two.

    I looked in my bucket of bees to see if I could see drones and/or new wax. I don't think I saw either one. The video is almost 5 minutes long with much of it in fast forward. http://youtu.be/j_NbTYAJU1M

    It has that skep look. When are you going to do the cut out? After new wax starts?

    I'm hoping to do it today if I can get the rain to hold off long enough. Between work and everything else I have to do, the weekend is the only time I have. I may have to do it in my workshop. That will make for an interesting video.

    Just curious, but how do you intend to cut that out? Drive the bees out, cut side attachments, then cut the bottom of the bucket off?

    I put a hole in the side of the bucket with a razor knife so I know it cuts fairly easily. I plan on turning the bucket over, cutting the outside off and cutting the comb off the bottom of the bucket. You should be able to see the video later today or tomorrow.

    That's awesome. That must have been the easiest bee removal ever. I wonder why we don't just use buckets as swarm traps?
