    I have posted ads for free honey bee swarm removals in south jersey. If they are too high or too far from me and people ask for a free removal are if there any other south jersey members here who would want me to give them thier address. Like i said i just posted them, so none yet, but if some come up and your in south jersey let me know and maybe i can hook you up. I only have one hive so one successful swarm is all i need. Thanks

    "I only have one hive", ahhhhhh, but there's the thing, you haven't taken into consideration the addictive nature of the hobby you are fooling with.
    First it's just one hive, and then, maybe I should have two, just in case............I think we all know where this is going don't we? :mrgreen:

    I haven't tried a top bar yet but I may. Right off the bat it looks like it would be easier on the back when it's on a stand. Not near the lifting. A whole lot cheaper to get started as well.
    That said, if you are looking for "parts", standard equipment (and information) is always easier to find.
    Variety is the spice of life, so experiment, clearly you are not afraid to try something new :D
