    to make more nucs. Get my folks involved before I have to leave for college. And try to make some sort of plan to stick too.

    Good for you! My resolution is to NOT take on any more cut-outs and removals from bee trees. I just don't have time like I used to, and the last dozen or so cut outs resulted in zero bees/hives. I resolve to retire from cut-outs and gladly refer them on to newer/younger beekeepers. It's far better for me to focus on caring for the hives I got (bird in the hand) than trying to help someone and pick up those two in the bush.

    I have had a top bar for 4 years and managed to kill 4 colonies of bees and lost a perfectly good swarm I tried to put in there to replace one of the winter dead outs. My resolve is to figure this monkey out before I chop the thing up for firewood.

    To see if I can understand better what is going on inside the hive instead of outside the hive. Hopefully I will have the time.
