    Default What a Great Day

    First I get my letter published in the paper and then a swarm call. Video to follow. They did something I have not observed before, within moments of being placed in the hive they had guard bees out. They where checking each and every bee that came in. Great day so far.

    That place sure looks familiar.

    BTW Great letter in the paper I looked it up. I felt the same way about that story. People at work were asking me what I thought about it.

    I am scared to video anything I do. I am liable to wind up on one of those shows where they show the idiot getting hurt or worse doing something stupid.

    Here's my NasalSponge method.



    This turned out to be very handy. Sure beats setting stuff on the ground. The green color I had long before though.
