Old Dairy Bldg Cutout
« on: April 01, 2012, 11:42:18 AM »
This is a cutout G3 and I done on March 30.  A special thanks to G3 for helping me on this one.  It went really well I think.  The bees were lil kamikazes at first but calmed down once we got there numbers down.  The bldg was gonna be demolished and rebuilt later so no repairs were needed.  Hope you all enjoy.

Good video James and George.  I don't know why they are going to demolish that building.   It just needed a little paint to look new.   :-D

I think propolis was the only thing holding it together :lau:

If I am not mistaken James has to go back and mow the grass and weed eat also  :evil:

This was a wonderful video and I enjoyed it very much. You do make a good pair on the cut outs.

 It is so important to have a bee vac to do a cut out. I did a cut out once with a couple of beeks and we did not have a bee vac. Just kept cutting out the comb and tying it in the frames and never saw the queen. Turned out the queen was on one of the frames but we were not experienced enough to see her. So it turned out fine anyway. But it sure was hard to do with all those bees in the way. We did smoke them gently off each section of comb as we cut it out.
