Re: First Cut Out - didn't go so great
I have a Lowes "bucket-vac" that I converted into a bee vacuum in case I ever need to use it. My goal doing bee removals from buildings is to never use it. The more you do cutouts the better you'll become at handling the bees, and comb and honey and setting it up in a new hive. Anyone can open up a wall and vacuum up a bunch of bees and throw them in a box, but your success will be much better in transferring them and keeping the queen alive if you take your time and do it right.
