I lost my smoker after setting it down on an old grill I was tossing out and the person who was taking the grill to the dump for me showed up and took the smoker as well.
It's going to be a few days before I can get a new one and today will be the last sunny day for a while. I was planning on going through the hives, adding a medium and switching out the stand.
Needless to say, I won't be going through the hives but will go ahead with switching the stand and adding the mediums.
I'm planning on plugging up the entrances with grass when I move them to replace the stand. As far as adding the mediums, I think I'll have to work fast. I think I'll bring some sugar water to spray them with, if not to calm them down, but at least keep them from flying.
