Jeremy--How did it end up going for you? Hope your queens and colonies are doing well!
It went fine. I was able to release the queens in both of the hives w/o issue. I was just out to look on them today and I can see comb sticking down out of the swarm that's hanging on the top, so that's a good sign
I see quite a bit of activity on both hives w/bees coming back with pollen. They are only a few days old, I'll do an inspection this weekend to see if they are following my guides or not
