Can you guys believe this? He doesn't know how to put bees in it. He asked me if he should vacuum bees off honey frames and them dump them in with a caged queen.

Hey, maybe the bees on those tiles are drones!

wow! Thats just too purty to be letting any ole bees nest in it!!! Not too mention it's gonna be awhole fore he can use the whole thing at one time!
Kind of looks like a Grandfather clock, perhaps Ollie has a little bit of cabinet maker in him.

How do you keep it suspended like that?
With the legs on it wont it be dangerous for the bears to climb up on that?

It is on a stool.
The closest thing to a bear in these parts is Charlie who started this post. And that is a complement. Too bad he can't post a picture right side up.
I will run a post on it when complete.
Can u make it a little smaller, Barry?
I don't know how to do that in my editor Mark. I'll have to figure it out.
Nobody ruins my day without my permission, and I refuse to grant it...
Hinged for viewing, love that!
Now is it such a goofy idea to vacuum, instead of blow, honey super bees, give them a queen and use them to start a hive? Other than they being old bees and it not being spring? I have read on here of beekeepers selling off their fall bees.
Are you and Charlie B related? You both should together start a full time ongoing thread called "Bash Oliver". I am glad to participate and supply regular fodder for your bashing. I can supply pictures for instance of my truck that I have not washed in a year or more. Or for example, some of my hives that are 40 years old and rotting into their stands. That would be a good one. Newbees can chime in on how my hives are not white and my extracting equipment is older than I am.
