hrmm this colony partially got spilled on the ground last night.. seems the cops shut down the neighborhood, went house to house with dogs, went through my backyard, knocked over both my trash cans, trash everywhere.  bumped the lid off and jostled em around, Im sure someone got lit up last night. I found them this morning swarming to a spot on the ground next to the hive when I went out back to build this morning..  I knew I shoulda kept the queen caged up till later today.  Hopefully they settle down.. Im pouring the syrup to them to make em happy. Gotta finish picking up trash. :-x

Duck have you done many cut outs this year?  I ask becasue the ones I have done have had alot bees but very little in the way of honey stores.  I am up near Fort Worth.
