As a fellow Iowa resident good luck with your bees! That cutout sounds like a keeper for sure. Once they settle in make sure you got a queen in there, and make sure they have plenty of stores for winter. How far east are you willing to travel? I am near Cedar Rapids, and I also do cutouts and swarms. Sometimes I will get a call from out west that is just too far for me to go to. If I get calls like that I would be happy to refer them to you if you would return the favor. DesMoines is as far as I would go for a good cutout, a swarm would have to be closer as they could take off before I could get there (Unless it was massive and close to dark where there would be a good chance of them still being there. And, of course, not yellow jackets.
