Great video.  The soft music at the start had me looking around trying to figure out where it was coming from.  Some of that comb looked really soft.  I always seem to crush that.  Good amount of brood in there.  Considering that was almost a month ago is the hive booming by now?

Sup JP?  grin Never would have figured the flipping the frame thing and would have used it on a similar removal a month back with new soft comb.
Hope you been busy on removals cuz we have not seen many videos as usual. Seen the nice bee hive at the zoo couple weeks back too and thought of you and figured you set it up for em.

Great work JP

I complained that I had the generator go down so it makes a removal a pain. And you go and make a video just to show me up I see how you are lol You left that top at home just because I said I would give it up if you took my bee vac didnt you lol. Well its still the same here if I had forgot the top I would have went home to get it. Just joking with ya but still great job how long did that one take?

The hive is doing great, they are in a deep & two mediums currently & building, tallow flow is on! This one took about four hours to do. The bees were & still are a joy to work with!

You should do a instructional video on cutouts/swarms.  There are many on here that are good but you are great.  I'm doing cutouts here in central texas and learn a lot from your videos.  thanks.

I love this old fashioned method that you used to do more often. Of course the bee vac makes it so much easier, but I think every beekeeper should know how to do this without anything but the smoke.

Enjoyed the music and watching you work, always so mellow an enjoying the work.
