I've had a hell of a successful year so far with catching swarms, swarm traps, and cutouts. Combined with successfully overwintered all my hives, I'm now ready to sell a few hives off to get me down to a few. I'll build back up again as the swarm season continues.
I'm a big believer in survivor bees. I only get ferals from cutouts and swarms. These bees can be a little on the hot side, but have remained untreated and lived.
6 hives, 10 frame langs. Natural drawn comb with and without wires, with some with older crappy frames used in swarm traps. (my swarm traps use to-be-retired semi broken frames)
PM if any interest
pickup in NW austin at dusk.
