An update on the cutout.
Got a call this morning that there was a swarm in a nearby maple about 40-50' up. Was planning to finish the cut out tomorrow because they were calling for rain and I wanted to vote before going in to work. I drove over with a swarm trap, some old comb and LGO. Set the trap on their deck and had scouts within seconds. They must have absconded this morning. Just a little robbing activity in the original hive. Hope to get a call by this evening that they accepted the trap. Supposed to storm pretty bad here later.
