Hello, JP and friends! I don't know how you think to do both a video and still images in the midst of a removal, JP. Impressive.
I'm interested in the new vacuum design, too, though I doubt anything will keep me from killing so many bees during removals. I've tried both the Walter Kelly vac and the Robo vac, and I still have a good-sized pile of wet and dead bees in the end. Which means I seldom have a viable hive once the removal is complete...I end up combining the cut out with a strong hive and using the queen for splits or in queenless hives. HELP.
