Been and put a 11ft scaffolding tower up today to take a Queen right colony on monday ..hopefully the rhombus board and snelgrove board contraption does the trick as the colony in the house is growing quite big..
Don't wish to be a kill joy but the insurance issues sound an absolute nightmare all things considered. God forbid anything goes wrong but you really do need to think about it in this day and age. Until it all goes wrong you have no idea what the consequences are.............Just say'n..
I have been an put the trap out colony on the scaffold today..it has a marked clipped good laying 2021 Queen in there..once i had fitted the bleed of pipe to the back of the hive through a eke below a rhombus board the amount of flying bees returning was huge..my thought are that it was a prime swarm with the original Queen that got laying pretty quickly once the bees started building comb..i just hope the lot of them will fit in a single national brood box because anything bigger will be too dangerous to lift down..
