    I will be TBH-iving come Sprint 2015 - can't wait.

    In the meantime, I just have to say - I find the combs made 'au naturel' are so beautiful. I continue to be mind boggled by the skill these fascinating little creatures exhibit.

    Thanks for sharing the pictures!

    I was so proud of my girls: this was one of the first combs they built at the beginning of this summer. It really is amazing.

    I measured a few other combs yesterday from one of the swarms we caught that ended up swarming and not successfully getting a queen mated. Right at 10 in 2". 5.08mm.

    The first one I started at the "10" and went down since it seemed to be right on a cell wall, and it looks like 4.8mm. The second looks like 5.25mm. (hard to know were to start so I started at 1.25 and it ended on 6.50 for 5.25mm)
