Queen Fiona's hive is doing ?
S&J hive is good.  
Another cutout that didn't work.  Would have caused structural damage to get to the hive, they were entering under a deck going in between the joists of the house.  All they need is a tiny entrance and a void and they will move in.  Be preventative.

Off Topic:
My grandmother died and we went home for the funeral last weekend.  
My heart also goes out to Wink's friends and family, author of A Creative Being blog.

Thanks for watching!
