    Thanks for the vid Buzz. I would love to take a look in that TBH it must be some strong to have that many drones kicked out. Also I like that TBH feeder. I could never figure a good way to feed my TBH and it was one of the reasons I switched to Langs. I never thought to go through the bottom.

    They were a fairly large swarm 2 to 3 gallons of bees.
    I let them do as bees do and they drew lots of drone combe. I think they had 2 queens for a while I found one dead out front but egg laying never slowed.
    I got the feeder idea off of the TBH forum.
    They guy also uses them for beetle traps with a screen over the top and bait in the bottom.
    Glad we dont have to deal with them.

    I am mentoring a guy on friday weather pending. Maybe I will get some vid or some frame shots.

    Wow, no ants or yellow jackets to cart away the bodies?
