Swarm/cut out/off
« on: May 28, 2009, 10:24:41 PM »
Tomorrow morning I will be going to take a look at some bees that look like they started out as a swarm then began to build comb on the bottom of a trampoline....of course I will check for AHB tendencies since building comb in the open is a trait of theirs. This should be interesting and I hope to have some pictures to share tomorrow eve. :-D

How many bounces do you think it will take to get the queen out?
