    Default Log hive cutout

    This went about as well as it could I guess. I don’t believe the hive swarmed this spring, but I’m not sure what happened to the queen. There was a big build up of population, so I think they had one for the first few weeks. Also possible she was injured or killed when the limb came down. Who knows. I made the most of it though.

    Nice.
    That log should make a perfect swarm trap.
    Be interesting to measure the cell sizes.

    I’m going to strap it back together and leave it set up. I’ve run afoul of my local zoning enforcer with having hives at my house, but I can just put this guy next to my wood pile. 👀
