    the cool thing is Cleo actually gave Kelly's the design for them to make. I'd make my own also.

    Two things, if that hive's only been there for a week, that means it's a late july swarm? See if you can judge the size of the hive before you invest a lot of time into ladder work. Also if you don't have a laying queen in another two weeks that hive's gonna be a goner anyway. Just finished a trapout that I started in mid may and I didn't even try to get the queen, just using a beevac to get the population down cause the guy wanted them gone.

    Being new this year I thought it would be fun to try to do a trap out but also since I have a lot of frames with foundation they might be able to draw some frames for me for next year. Anyway we'll see what happens when it is all said and done.
