    FlowerPlanter - your jig sounds cool, but I can’t quite picture how it is done from your description. Could you post a picture? I like the idea that I can reuse the bags.

    I feel for you. It is frustrating to lose a hive, and then learn after the fact that there was something you could have done about it.

    Do the ND and SD hives stay there year round? Or are these hives wintered in the south? I’m just wondering if we are comparing apples with apples.
