What happened Scott? Cut the wrong branch?  grin

Question on screened nucs. Some people are reporting that nucs, solid bottoms, help build up faster because it's warmer.
Have you seen any differences in building up with solid or screened?
But then you're in FL, it might not make a difference.

I use the screened bottom nucs for catching swarms and transporting them. The screen gives them plenty of ventilation in our hot weather. I moved this swarm the next morning out to a bee yard and placed it on a 4 way pallet.


"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
