    Nice video
    That couch was the answer to kids jumping on the couch and chairs. After jumping on that one they would think twice.

    Nice double catch JP. :thumbsup:
    Question, I've done two cut-outs this year, caught the queen both times. Both superceded right after they got set up in their new homes. Trying to figure out why. Is the queen taking the heat for all the disruption?

    Perry, who knows why they superseded, perhaps they were slightly injured during the removal or aftermath. I wouldn't worry about it much. Pat yourself on the back for doing a proper removal that allowed them to requeen in the first place.

    You are the man! I felt like a big sissy after watching you just scooping handful after handful of bees. I wear the complete get up. Thanks very much for posting the video. It was very entertaining and I will probably pull that out every once in a while when I am feeling timid. Great job!
