First of all, I love top bar hives, but one thing I find that's a huge downfall with them vs Langs is the ease of doing cut-outs. If I do more of these in the future, or on a more consistent basis, I may have to consider having a batch of Langs dedicated to cut-outs. Someone may have tips on how to make it more easy with top bar hives - especially sealing them up after the fact. Please chime-in if so.
Now, for this cut-out I'm about to show, it was a situation where a the lady originally called a man who was going to come poison them. He told the lady, quote, "these bees can't be saved because they spread viruses to other bees". He also added that the lady should be prepared for a loud roar under her home from when he applies the poison. ISN'T THAT SWEET !?!?!?!?!
Anyhow, he never got back to her for several weeks. So she then called me because I was next on the list at the police dept or animal control.
The video pretty much speaks for itself. I'm very, very happy with how everything went - especially since I'm still fairly new at this:
