JP, that first link, May, was that a small hive you removed? Did you combine or how are they doing now?
I did a similar one just at the beginning of this month. The amount of bees were very small but they are home now and seem to be doing good. Will inspect for the first time
and remove the cover from the medium tomorrow. Yeah, I took the cover home with me!
Will return it after I cut off the combs attached.
