    For those wanting to see the dramatic queen retrieval, it starts at 5.10.

    Well, almost see it, anyway.

    LOL, EVERY removal is dramatic to most of you in the northern United States this time of year.

    Y'all have to live vicariously through me during these winter months.

    I agree! Pat's videos have opened my eyes to several possibilities for alternate hive options.

    On the topic of alternative hives....

    My best pick up this year was an out door speaker call... ok, I expected a big out door speaker... nope, it was the little 12" tall by 6" wide, 6" deep speaker........ Ended up gutting it to give the bees more room, and stuck it inside a box eventually after opening the back panel and setting the open side next to the frames in the box. Left them a few months and finally caught the queen out after they'd pretty much filled 6-7 deep frames plus drawing out the bottom since we had to use an empty medium on the bottom of the deep to house the speaker in the hive.

    I seem to recall a post you made on this- did you snap any photos of their near-complete comb building efforts?
