    Re: Review Of Lyson Jacket

    Agreed! I actually dislike the Ultrabreeze, but my wife adopted it and likes it so all ends well.

    Hopefully she never tries on the Lyson. I should stop raving aboot it to her I guess.

    Re: Stop Swarming during flow?

    Yes. I just didn’t realize it was that easy to circumvent a swarm once they put it into motion.

    What if one were to just cut out swarm cells and requeen with a fresh Queen?

    Re: Stop Swarming during flow?
