I'm bringing a nuc to the gathering that had a swarm occupy it while empty. ( no frames at all)

Since bud and jp and Shawee seem to have Larry set up on his cutout assignment I figured the next assignment should go to my first apprentice moot.
Plan b, I'm looking for an assignment for you too evil

Moot is assigned the task of doing this small cutout but it has a restriction!!  He is not allowed to destroy the nuc box!!

Figured that would make things just a bit more interesting evil : : evil
Plus the fact that he will need something to carry them home in means he can't bust up the box  lau

Moot. Be sure to bring at least 5 empty med frames.  Also bring a full 8 frame setup in case they won't fit back into the original nuc.

This will be good experience and great entertainment for all. Especially me!!! lau lau lau

Moots you may want to bring some good size rubber bands or string.  Cutting out of a nuc isn't to bad if you know thats what you are going to do.   Before I bought my hives from the estate, a guy gave me a nuc.  Told me I could have them and the nuc.  Never opened it till I got them home, nothing on the frames, they had comb on the walls.  You should have no problem Moots

Bailey said for Moots to bring a full 8 frame box to take them home in.

 piano applause Thanks my friend  Smiley I willingly and with great excitement accept this challenge!  As a matter of fact, I'm thinking, "Not a problem, I got this under control!".....Which is probably the best indicator that I don't have a clue what I'm in for, or what I'm doing.  huh ...... LOL!  grin

As if I wasn't already excited enough about Bud5 and experiencing enough sleepless nights posed by all the never ending questions and "to do's" brought on by my new addiction of being a Beek?.......Now I can add 3 weeks of sleepless nights dominated by how to crack this little safe of a bee assignment that's been scheduled for me.  Smiley

I CAN'T WAIT!  hissy fit I'll be ready and have a game plan in place.  I'm sure it'll be entertaining for everyone... pop pop pop

Bailey, you just make sure those gals show up and don't go and swarm on you before Bud5... grin
Now....How you're suppose to do that, I haven't a clue.  huh  But I'm confident you can do it!  Think of that as your Bud5 assignment and challenge!  grin

Listen guys! Last year I was the new guy in town, but we will be having a bunch of new guys and gals this year. I'm sure these fine people will jump at the chance to do cutouts. Cutouts are just not my thing! I have no desire to do them, although I do enjoy watching others do them. We don't even own a truck and you can't do them without one.

At home here, June and I wear our veils and gloves while inspecting our bees and rarely use any smoke at all. It is very enjoyable for us cause we do it together. This is all we want to do, besides ride our ATVs twice a week.

I will take your kidding around but I will never do a cutout. My main reason for going to Bud5 is just to see all of you again.

Well, being a newbie, I'm not sure exactly what all will take place at Bud5...But it looks like seeing Larry do a cut out can definitely be removed from the list of possibilities!   grin

Looking forward to meeting everyone, should be a great time.  Smiley

Make sure you video shooting a swarm out of a tree.

I think to make it fun you aught to have a couple of new guys with cardboard boxes trying to catch the swarm as it falls.


Wish I could make it, have fun.

Don't worry moot will just swap position with another weaker nuc and they won't have the numbers to swarm and will strengthen one of my nucs.
