Cut out this late
I did a cut out last week or they would of been pushed up and burnt. They had brood but no capped honey. Seemed weird to me. Today I got a call and went to look to find another that looks to be about the same shape. They have about 6 football shape and length combs and maybe 1/4 lb of bees on it under an eve exposed. There is no way they can winter here so will have to try to take them under my wing and hive them. Any thought on if they can make it even feeding the fire out of them? These appear to be feral as hey are much smaller then the ones I get in a package. I am in west central Illinois.
Some can learn by others mistakes , others have to whizz on the electric fence for themslves .
