    Default Bait hive pickup and cut-out - same premises

    .

    This cut-out was a bit of a challenge being in such a tight spot and portions obscured by 2x4s.

    Another great video, Pat. That was a good sized cut-out!

    It was more trouble than it needed to be.

    I appreciate the kind comments and taking the time to watch this stuff.

    What do they say- it always takes longer and costs more?

    You've got this cutout routine down cold- you always make it look easy.

    Admittedly, the transfer to the aquarium hive went well.

    The ones in the wall between two floors at the apartment complex, not so much, lol.

    Thanks !!

    If I would have known ahead of time that they didn't build comb inside the top bar nuc, I may not have placed them in the top bar aquarium hive.

    I had to cut that comb off in order to lift the lid.

    Anyhow,I was just assuming it was going to be a bunch of top bar comb inside.

    But at the same time, I'm glad I did. It's really cool having that aquarium hive active.

    Some days it's not even worth chewing through the restraints.

    This is a neat idea, Pat. I imagine with a bit of adaptation, us folks in more Northern climes could make interesting conversation pieces in our homes with the same basic idea. Thanks for posting.

    Yes, the whole battle with cold is not something I ever want to encounter.

    Hive beetles are our battle down here.

    ... Or you can move to Kentucky and deal with single-digit lows in the Winter and hive beetles in the Summer. The best of both worlds .
