Re: New (to me anyway) idea on framing cutouts faster
With Lang frames (and I do all of my wood frames foundationless anyway) Fastest easiest at cutout, prep frames with 1" chickenwire. Staple to one side, have enough to wrap around bottom and come up to top bar.
Easiest during cutout NOT easiest to remove. Rubber bands are easiest to remove..
Nighttime removals are for the brave. I've certainly finished one after dark, but I could see what I was dealing with before I started.
Time to be a gypsy again, 2014 will be my prep year, my bees want a better area with actual rainfall.
