    Vanessa is sexy, and if those are African Bees they were very gentle African bees.

    Why would the bee removal man say they were Africanized? I can think of no good reason for concluding that. Hopefully he wasn't just playing on public fear and ignorance to sell his services or trying to make himself appear brave.

    I think he was trying to sell his service using fear.

    he was trying to justify the high price he was getting paid for the removal, removals are cheaper in the none AHB states, when they get to Ga. my price will go up also

    If they were Africanized he did a lot to show that they are not the killer everyone thinks they are and that they can be worked, and if they weren't-dang good publicity-. Either way he got what he wanted-free advertisement- probably worth a couple thousand dollars.

    I don't know about you gals/guys, but I was amazed to see him do a removal without a veil. Pictures are more powerful than words.

    I've been able to do a couple with no suit, it's a unique feeling, not panic or anything like that really hard to explain rather enjoyable, to be able to do it without full battle dress.

    I haven't dealt with pure africanized bees, but I think we've got a couple of REALLY hot hives...those bees certainly weren't africanized!!

    Africanized?!?! T-shirt with name/phone number. The guy didn't even have a bee vac - he was using a McDonald's cup to scoop up bees. Hope he wasn't charging by the hour!
