That’s how I started out, doing a cutout on a barn. Ended up with two colonies, one of which swarmed while we were doing the second one. Simply amazing.
Do your research, find a local beek that’s experienced in cutouts that will help come next year. IMO, just having the opportunity to be working alongside a beek is worth the price of admission.
