Why do you choose to use a vac on some cut outs and not others? (I probably know the answer to this but I might be surprised.) And number 2, I haven't seen any videos or read how the bees in the vac are handled post cut out. I would think they would be a tad cranky after being vacuumed up. Jus wonderin.

 I use the vac on all cut outs. I'm paid to remove the bees so they get the vac (bushkill). Mainly I need the bees in the box ASAP so I vaccuum them up then transfer the comb. As far as temperment goes they are pretty forgiving and can be moved to a bottom board that very afternoon without veil or gloves.

Dragging the cords out for the vac is a pain.   Also, when it is hot, you have to watch it and keep the bees from over heating.  But the vac is a very useful tool and makes moving a lot of bees easy.

One for each hand?   Cuts down removal time in half.
