    Great innovation.

    This is the first year I'm using these. I've used a variety of tubes, reeds, blocks over the years. I believe these will make harvesting much easier. Plus, it occurred to me that with extra inserts you could remove full inserts mid-season and replace with empty ones if it looks like you need more capacity. ------*****------- Crown Bees response: Mike, you are correct! This is why we sell our inserts in 60 ct packs. Pro Tip: when you drop your inserts into warm water in the fall for cocoon harvesting, the glue dissolves allowing one to pull strips of paper out while the cocoons float easily in the water.
