    Default This typifies the insanity in my back yard within a 24-hour span

    .

    Do some of you wonder how my neighbors feel about all my hives swarming, etc?

    There's been no complaints.

    But I'm prepared with a wall of bait hives, lol..

    Haha, yes. I'm trying my hardest to please the viewers, even at the risk of losing queens.

    I'm sure there are old-timers out there watching, screaming, "PUT THAT DOGGONE CAMERA DOWN!"

    But I wouldn't be doing all of this if it wasn't thrilling and fun.

    Thanks as always, Ollie!

    The video was 26 minutes that I originally tried to post to YouTube. Thank goodness it got rejected and I had to edit it down to only 15 minutes...Lol.

    Catching the queen and using her to lure the bees into a more desired location is brilliant. Brilliant.
    Internet credibility is an oxymoron

    Can I give you my wife's phone number so you can tell her what you just said?...Lol.

    Well, I appreciate the complement, but it was really lucky timing more than anything that she happened to be right there and I happened to have a queen clip ready just ten feet away.

    I appreciate the kind words.

    But it wasn't cooperation. It was complete intimidation with an iron fist.

    They haven't been affected by swarms yet. Next door, sometimes they drink from their pool in the summer, but I make it all better with honey for his baked beans.
