    Default Cutout

    I did a cutout yesterday and have a question. I have some frames of both honey and pollen and am wondering if putting them in a deep and placing it on top of the cutout would be beneficial?

    Couldn't hurt. I have always fed them for a couple weeks after the cut-out. Good luck.

    I think it depends on the volume/frames of bees from the cutout, and how much honey (if any) already in there. Do they need it? Can you just put a few frames in with them, without the extra box? What you don't want to do is invite a robbing situation, by having more volume they can defend in this sensitive stage.
    Please excuse me, I am now free to go manage & treat ;)
    my ladies the best way I know how.
