Did a good sized cutout today. in a study cavity 2' on center. probably 8 to 10 ft. high. Had to do it indoors since it was waaaaay high off the ground outside.
Used a bee vac designed after one Robo has on his blog. BRAVO Robo that thing was amazing.
If I can get pics, I'll post. We got a lot of capped honey, but no brood, I think the hive had swarmed. Only one capped queen cell to save.
