After reading Gilligan's thread, wonder what I will find.
I'm starting a cut out this afternoon:
These bees are about 3/4 miles from my house as the bee flies. I got 2 swarms in my back yard bait boxes last week. First question, is it possible they could be swarms from these bees?
So, if my timing is off it could end up like Gilligan's cut out experience? Will post more later on the outcome. On Sunday evening, me and property owner moved a bunch of stuff off trailer so I have room to work. There were plenty of bees bringing in pollen. The bees have propolized and probably comb attached this tray to the trailer wall. He loaned me his machete to help cut the comb off the wall.
Well in any case, this is an easy and fun cut out. I get to return a favor to a friend. Outcome is all good no matter what.
