    Great video Jp! I did a cutout a couple weeks ago by myself. It was hard work! I think I saw the queen at 7:21 at top right of last comb section you take out. She slips up and over. If I am right, she has a dark tail. What do ya think?

    Perry, what are you saying, that I'm getting old?
    Well, you know my beard color is starting to look like yours! :lol:

    ​Glad y'all enjoyed the video folks & I have to thank the bees for making it possible of course!

    JP--of course the bees cooperated, they felt themselves secure in your hands. Beautiful handling of that family.
    Dave, your eyes are really well trained. That queen didn't give you very long to spot her. Looks like you caught a speeder .:clapping:

    JP, I saw you shake a swarm from high up in a tree on youtube, and it works for me too! Thanks for the videos. My swarms were in the tree behind my hives, 20+ feet up. The cloth on the ground, a box and a 20ft long pole with a hook on it was all I needed. Waited until morning when it was cool outside, they fell right to the cloth and marched in. Thanks again for your videos :)
