Sounds like it to me.  Good luck with your bees.  They are a lot of fun to mess with.

Crack is a horrible thing!  Great story.  Good chuckle.  You are definitely a beekeeper now.  Enjoy them.

Did a quick check today on the feeders. Just popped the tops and looked in. None needed a refill but 5 of the 10 are building comb on the cover :(. (Using 1 gal baggies on top of frames with a 4in box on top of that) Guess in about a week when I do my first full inspection I will have to cut all that comb out. Hopefully they have also drawn some of the frames by then.

Crumple up some newspaper around the baggie to use up the space. Just don't place it over the baggie.
Oh,it sounds like you are a official keeper now. :)
