This hive is doing great, had to add in some empty frames for them to drawl out......and another box...24 empty frames in four weeks is pretty good in my book:D

Bluegrass, some very nice pictures.  It looks like your beesuit is very lightweight and probably pretty cool, bare hands!!!!  Yeah.  My bee suit is a heavy cotton and is quite warm.  Have a wonderful day, great life.  Cindi

The suit is a tyvek painter's suit, 6.00 at home depot. I use them several times and then throw them out.....I just washed one that I got covered in honey this week and it held up fine. They don't really breath so its not the coolest thing on the planet, but its cooler than most commercial bee suits. I find it hard to work in gloves and only use them when I have to ie. cutouts. That top pic is the only swarm call I have had so far this year. That pine tree is only about 6' tall so the swarm size is decieving. I would say it was about 2 lbs tops.
