    Default Update To "In The Groves"...Video Of Our Trip

    Jerry (Matt1954) was kind enough to let me tag along with him on his trip to move his hives. The video diary of our four-day trip is located here:

    Thanks for making the video available. We have a forecast high of -2F on Monday. Warm bee-work, even testy bee-work, looks good to me. Although I wonder if your buddy might need some better screens.

    Very cool thanks for sharing. I plan on making my first trip to the groves this year too. I'm a little bit nervous.

    John, this was my first trip into the groves as well. And many times, experience is the teacher. I can say I learned an awful lot on this trip of things I should and should not do.

    Hey Matt, where's your chain binders to hold that tractor to the trailer? You guys are a lot braver than me.

    I see so many things in that video that are wrong.......I don't even know where to begin. Lack of smoke... tarp....daylight moving with warm temps....no running vehicle keeping vibration on loaded bees while unloading........screening while flying.....breaking apart boxes before moving<-----Thats just a start

    Not trying to pick on you Matt but this could be a way to teach others lacking experience what not to do.

    Shannon, thanks for your comments. As you know, things happen unexpectedly. We were using smoke, we did have tarps, and some of the hives did come apart when we hit one of the trees going into the orchard. Life is an imperfect world.

    Life is a learning experience and everyone starts where and when they start. I know what you mean Beeslave I wondered why screening was bothered with considering how the strapping opened the hives and the covers didn't stay in place. But, I bet DC learned something and hopefully will improve.
