My list of tools for doing a cutout would include the following:
1. Power box to transfer power from my truck to the shop vac I use.
2. Shop vac for sucking up the bees.
3. Bee box that I made for holding the bees, vacuuming them up as I go, less bees to fight.
4. Battery operated Saws-All with extra battery fully charged. Had one go down on me on a cutout once and stopped everything.
5. Pry bar.
6. Saw horses, and 8 ft. of 1x10 plank. Great for setting the bee box and shop vac on when doing the cutout.
7. Baby wipes, to wipe all the nectar and honey off as we go. It's a messy process.
8. Medium box with at least 2 frames of brood and 2 frames of honey or nectar. I used to do just foundation but have found out that using the frames of brood and honey calms the bees down over night. By the next morning, when I have the bees, they are all busy at work with a job to do, covering the frames of brood and honey, transfer was a dream. I learned this on my last cutout, sadly not the first or life would have been so much easier.
9. Something very cold to drink with a straw has saved me on so many cutouts. In my full beesuit, I get so overheated. By using a straw in my drink, I'm able to slightly unzip my suit just far enough to stick the straw thru and get a good drink. Saved me so many times. When temps are in the high 90s or low 100s, it's hot.
10. Extension cord to transfer power from the box to the shop vac.
11. Jumper Battery cables to get power from the battery to the power inverter.
Anyway, that's my basic list. Feel free to add to the list.
P.S. Being a new beek, doing cutouts has surely been an excellent way to add to the number of my hives. I always try to get some of the honey back to the landowner who gave me permission to tear up some building or structure to get at the bees.
