    Not to be that guy, but the reason it's hard to find info on skeps is because they are illegal in the state's I believe. Kept hives have to have the ability to be inspected.

    That being said I...

    I was under the impression that adult beetles would fly for miles to the scent of a beehive. We luckily dont have a problem with them here in Colorado, but there are always random sightings around...

    Front range Colorado. 10 a lb but could probably get more. I would rather move it and stop having to deal with it than charge more.

    Dusk is a more appropriate description. I usually only wear a veil when I inspect. I'll pick up a 4 or 5 stings in a yard of 20 hives and it's not a big deal. I bumped a hive on accident trying to...

    Medium nucs are scarce, you could almost charge more for them. I would do what jwpalmer said and add an extra frame of brood. Things are worth what people will pay for them, and people pay more for...

    Ok, but even if it is a temporary box, you should still try to take advantage of brood breaks to grab an oav when you can. It's like half the benefit of making nucs in my opinion.
