       Sorry SAS I dont. Got enough to do now with 16 langstroths as it is . Especially as I have picked up 4 swarms in the last week, but dont let that stop you from telling your stories or asking the questions as so much is common to both forms.
        Good company here.
                                    Cheers

ah thats a shame, i really need ideas and a bit of advise, i think i should try and master this technique, i think it would be a good challange and a lot of fun, and besides, i can then sell my honey with pure wax for honey comb and up the prices abit more haha : P also, i have a really big cluster of bees out the front of one of my hives,, any ideas as to why they would be doing this, it wasnt really an unusually hot day, its was hot but not that hot, the rest of the hive still appears to be collecting well ?? whats the go ?
