Got a swarm call this morning.  My wife collected them.  They went nicely into the hive

I'd be more aggressive in offering to collect swarms myself if the supply guy wasn't 60 miles away.
congrats. They look like a couple nice ones.

Way to go! Always good to have too much woodenware laying around than not enough.

You're right JP.  I began cutting and ripping last night.  Have a few more brood boxes in the process.  I just built 100 deep frames a couple weeks ago, and that pile is getting slimmer.

Robo, that new air stapler and frame jig has been the cats meow.  Looks like a lumberyard run is in order.
