    :thumbsup::coolphotos:
    Handling two boxes (pic #1) can definitely be a bit stressful. "Divide and conquer". It should be a lot easier to handle them, especially deeps, one at a time. If you are concerned about too much exposure if separating them, cover each box with a cloth while they're apart. Actually, a few well placed puffs of smoke should keep things calm enough if they are only apart for a short while.
    I like that box with the painted handle grooves only. They almost make the box look like a "smiley" :grin:

    If those 2 boxes were not empty, remind me never to argue with you! :shock:
    Everything looks good! :thumbsup: Still a while before I can do that up here.

    the boxes were very full! I figured less stress for the bees to keep them together. the girls were definately not too happy with me during all of this!
