You are the man, David. If you're not careful, you'll need to get more hired help when the time comes to collect the rent.Yesterday, I moved another swarm trap from the tree it was on to a bee yard and captured a swarm cluster that was thirty feet up in a tree.
Next planned tasks are to put together some nucs, assemble some foundationless frames, and do a cutout.
You are the man, David. With all these swarms and cutouts you are doing, what is your approximate hive count at now?Moved a couple of big hives this evening and pulled five more swarm traps with bees off of trees.
Thank you, David. I appreciate your reply, and I apologize for my delay writing back. It has been a hectic couple of weeks in the beeyard and this in addition to my day job makes it hard to find time to get in front of the computer.We generally sell nucs as they become well established, but every year is different, and our time is the biggest variable.
David:e tell folks that our nucs have capped brood and good population from feral cutouts and trapped swarms and swarm stock. That seems to be what our customers are looking for.
