July 14th hefted this repurposed Jenny Craig styro cooler & felt like 50-60lbs. Worried that I waited to long got to work ASAP readying for cut out. Put 9 brood combs w/ starting to backfill w/ nectar & some honey in 2 deeps. Feeding back nectar & honey comb to this first year hive. Seen nice vigorous queen but she shimmied away from my queen catcher & as was getting darker concentrated on cutting out comb w/o damaging it or bees to much.
Placed on hive stand w/ water moats so hopefully ants will not bother while bees repair, clean & aclimate to larger surroundings. This was a mid April swarm & seems to be a nice first year colony.
