Anticipating arrival of some beekeeping equipment.

Tomorrow I should be receiving a package from Brushy Mountain Bee Farm. I have 20 small hive beetle traps, a comb honey cutter, and some honey-b-healthy.

I am planning on adding the beetle blaster beetle traps to my 3 remaining langstroth hives (1 in Findlay, 2 in Ada) Monday and Tuesday evening. If weather and lighting permit, I will also be removing a medium honey super from my Findlay apiary to try some cut comb. If the honey cappings have become soiled from bee prints, I will only be cutting the comb out of the frames and using the crush and strain method of honey harvesting. I currently do not have an extractor and will probably not be able to purchase one for another year or so.
