    Default Successful cut-out this past Saturday - 2-15-14 - GOT QUEEN TOO !

    .

    ANY cut-out where you get the queen is a success.

    The video doesn't show it, but yesterday, about an hour-or-two after I released the queen from the clip into the general population, I found the queen "sunning" near the entrance with a bunch of bees around her.

    I placed her on the end of a slender wooden rod (she climbed right aboard) and I gently shoved her back in the entrance. I think she has stayed put ever since.

    You're very welcome.

    Yes, I use top bar hive equipment, but that's my lot in life.

    Haha. Tripod?

    I'm using my Galaxy phone. I don't even have a proper video camera.

    But I don't want to sell anymore bees until I have some momentum built up to do some splits. My wife agrees with you, though, that I should sell them as soon as I get them.
