    Default Cut-out 4/27/13

    I helped on a cut-out this past weekend for my first hive. A fellow Beesource member (wildforager aka Little John) brought his experience and bee vac and everything went super smooth. I thought the hive was really stronger for this time of year in WI, pulled 5 frames of brood and eggs from the hive and another 3 buckets of nectar/pollen filled combs and 1.5 buckets of capped honey stores. There was also quite a lot of uncapped honey as well.

    Some pics (credit Little John):






    Found the Queen as well:




    Not a single sting to boot!


    Best regards,

    Nice! The bees are just gearing up this time of year. Perfect time to perform a cutout. Three months from now would have been a totally different story.
    Nice pics.
