    I left the hive there inside the porch with all the brood comb rubber banded inside, I never saw a Queen, I guess they can make another if she didn't survive. I'm hoping they'll all be in it in the morning early.

    Nice video- well done.

    I imagine that as cutouts go, you couldn't have asked for a better situation being able to easily get to them from the back-side like that.

    Congratulations- I hope they prove to be a really productive colony for you.

    Thanks, yeah right, perfect conditions, had a screen to keep them from flying away, fan to stay cool. They were super gentle,. came from the neighbors across the street I think, only got stung once, when I removed the bee vac top.

    Certainly sounds like a great one to 'get your feet wet'.

    Did have any issues with the bees not using the rubber banded comb after the cut-out? Since you rotated it 90 degrees the orientation of the comb would have been different from how they had built it...
