    great video!
    funny watching that again, while you are cleaning the sbb off the mouse is running around looking for 'home'....:lol:

    need a mouse catcher to go with the queen catcher, did you get the dirty little bugger?

    You were much calmer than I would have been when the mouse appeared. Good video, though. :)

    Did you use a tripod for your camera?

    that mouse cracks me up.....jb you are yammerin' and cleaning that screened bottom board off , and that mouse is scampering around, looking to go home and it ain't there....:lol:

    apis-
    "NIce video thanks. Did you reverse the supers? and move the medium super down and moved the deep up to have the frame feeder in the top super? "

    totally funny apis, does your bee brain ever quit working?! :lol:
    a good point though for newer beeks that might not know, and also, beeks, look for your queens on the underside of the lid, especially in the spring, when you take it off and put it aside, i check it all year before i put it aside. you will find the queens sometimes wandering around up there, jb, good eye on spotting her right away and being prepared!

    also apis, can't help myself, sometimes you just got to dance......i borrowed omie's cat .......:lol: just scroll til you can't see it, just had to poke some fun :lol:
    (and you know i am having fun with you!)
