    Re: Need advise? bees have to go!

    I did one of these at Upton Kentucky back about 2002. They were tearing down an old house. I cut a 4 ft X 4 ft section (used a chain saw) which included all the colony. The inside was paneling,...

    Re: Bottom Board Position

    This has to be one of the few places/forums that you can get a disagreement on everything, from the size of elephants, to how much they weigh.

    Re: Bees in a pipe How to remove

    I would leave them in the pipe, run the pipe into a 10 framer and let the bees move into the 10 framer. Move the 10 framer away, and let bees rob out the original colony. Then cut/push out comb and...

    Re: Making hand holds on bee boxes

    kilocharlie... I wish I knew what that means, "lots of set" and a low ATB. But, I don't.

    In the video I had a kerf blade on the saw and if you listen carefully you can hear it bogging down. ...

    Re: Trap out from under a shed

    Bevy... Any swarms they catch will be yours, unless, you do not want them. I will let you make that decision. Sure looks like that area is a good place for swarm boxes.

  8. Re: My removal videos in all their true hi-def glory

    I think you are right. The streaming video is not HI-DEF, and yes there was a little blurryiness, but, for what you are doing here, the streaming video is good enough. It still comes across fine....

    PatBeek.. I tried your download in HI-Def.

    Initially it started streaming and then I clicked on "download file" After three minutes of downloading, it came up that it had downloaded 15.2MB...

    Re: Trap out from under a shed

    Re: Another removal pics

    I have never tried playing music during a cutout, but, many years ago when I fished the pro bass circuit, I found that, at times, playing loud music resulted in more bass. Don't know if it was the...

  13. Re: Best way to remove a colony that has been sprayed without cutting

    Twenty years ago I had a similar call. They too, had been sprayed. They were in a brick apartment building. On a golf course. I resorted to buying a $5.00 vacuum cleaner at Goodwill and put the...

    Re: too late to trap in Ontario?

    No. That will not help anything. Let them Winter in the log.

    Some time, late this Winter, prepare the log for trapping out. There are several ways you can get bees out of a log.

    1. Do a...

    Re: Bee removal question

    Not necessarily. If the trapout is completed, and the entrance is left open for a few days, and if there are other feral bees in the area, the bees will rob the comb of any honey, the brood will not...

    Re: too late to trap in Ontario?

    Yes, I would think it is too late to trap in Canada. I stop trapping in Kentucky about the 1 to 15th of July.

    For years I kept a propolis/wax soaked burlap bag hanging in front of my hives about 8 feet off the ground. Over the years, it caught several swarms, and stayed there until it rotted away.

    Re: Bees in tree
