  1. Re: Just setup trap-out when a QUEEN flies back from mating ! (video)

    .
    Beeman, thanks for the chuckle this morning. Your scenario is probably the most plausible though.

    Yes, I thought about all the other possible scenarios and they are all very possible. I'd love...
  2. Just setup trap-out when a QUEEN flies back from mating ! (video)

    .

    It was only about 5-10 minutes after I had placed the cone on the wall and setup the hive that the (or a) queen flies in.

    I'm assuming it's a new queen flying back from a mating session, as...
  3. Re: Swarm removal from apartment wall - they just moved in (video)

    I don't have any problems.

    Everything works perfectly.

    It's just my deal.

  6. Re: Swarm removal from apartment wall - they just moved in (video)

    I know. And again, I had a vac. But I wasn't in a huge hurry. I know this sounds hippie-ish, but I just didn't feel like traumatizing them that much just to save a bit of time.

    Even if the vac...

    Inspection of one of my barrel hives

    .

    Although the barrel hive I inspect in this video seems to go very smoothly, I have another one
    in my backyard that's bigger and badder. I probably won't be filming that one anytime...
  8. Re: Swarm removal from apartment wall - they just moved in (video)

    I had a bee vac on hand.

    I thought it would have been overkill for such a small swarm.

    The Honey B Gone worked perfectly.

    I've found myself using the bee vac a lot less lately for some...

    A very familiar location for me to remove bees - on the premises of a certain apartment
    complex which is right next to orange groves in Lake Wales, FL:

  10. Re: I will help provide your fall/winter bee-removal entertainment from Florida (vide

    I do have a place to take them. But it really is a pain-in-behind to move them down there, especially since I don't have a truck.

    Would anyone like to come to Lakeland to help move them and I...
  11. Re: I will help provide your fall/winter bee-removal entertainment from Florida (vide

    My wife was laying out in the sun yesterday and some curious bees were checking her out, but not attacking her.

    She wants some hives to disappear.

    The party ALWAYS has to end.

  12. Re: Swarm removal from Ford Bronco and short tour of hives (video)

    .

    So I inspected this hive today and found that they had built several queen cells from the supplies I had given them from other hives, which obviously means they were queenless.

    What's good...
  13. Re: Swarm removal from Ford Bronco and short tour of hives (video)

    .

    By the way, I still haven't confirmed if this swarm has a queen or not. The small bit of comb I saw recently only had nectar, but that doesn't mean she's not there.
    If they don't have a...
  14. Re: Swarm removal from Ford Bronco and short tour of hives (video)

    The feedback is much appreciated. I often get annoyed by my own voice in the videos, so I'm glad
    someone is enjoying my quacking-out information.

    Thanks for the kind words.......and you're welcome !

    The removals really don't ever have an off-season down here in the central part of Florida.

    And yes, I got the queen on this one.

    The Honey-B-Gone spray helped tremendously again.

    Here's a removal I did the other day where I had to use the priceless and indispensable Honey B Gone,
    which makes bees move/fly when needed. It's all natural, by the way.

    My apologies...

    I almost got a broken neck looking up 35-40 feet to this exposed hive in Valrico, FL today.

    I do removals, but this is beyond my reach (so-to-speak). I'm not experienced enough with trees,...
  22. Re: Removal using top bar hives - rainy conditions made nightmare at end

    Yes, the biggest chore I have is cutting the combs to fit correctly. Sometimes there are small bits that have to be sacrificed.
  23. Re: My removal videos in all their true hi-def glory

    Ha !! I was just thinking that today.

    You're right.

    I'll just have to sign a deal with Netflix and they can rent out DVDs of my removals.

    Ok, I just realized that this thread has probably...

    I think I may have an idea how we all can share hi-def videos with each other.

    Whoever is interested would have to sign up for DropBox. www.dropbox.com

    Then, we could all have a joint...
  25. Re: My removal videos in all their true hi-def glory

    Thanks for the attempt, Cleo.

    I highly doubt the streaming was in hi-def. If there was ANY amount of blurryness, it was the compromised streaming version.
