Picture of cutout done today 7-7-07
« on: July 07, 2007, 10:25:59 PM »
Here is one pic of the cutout that I did this morning. I had a few more to share but deleted them by mistake. I got 7 pounds of bees out of this cutout with lots of honey an brood. Had some kids watching me as Idid this. I think they had just has much fun as I did doing it. My be some new beekeeper in a couple of years. Have two more cutouts to do next weekend. One in a old barn an a old house.



Have a great day

Do you use a bee vac?

Yes I did use a bee vac for this one. But there have been times that I have not due to not having Electricity at the place of the cutout. I find that using a bee vac saves me alot of time.

Looked like a fairly easy one depending on the height from the ground.  I always like the ones with comb parallel to the opening.  From the looks of the dark comb in the back they where there for a while.  Where you able to spot the queen?

This was a easy one. Stood on the ground the hole time other then to take the last board off an cut the comb at the very top. I did not see the queen I looked before I vac them. But she is like finding a needle in a hay stack. I have found her before on other cutout that I have done.

James, awesome picture.  It looks like you must have some fun.  Great day, great life.  Cindi
