Ollie's Feminine Side Comes Out

7467 29
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.

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?
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.

Here is the back, more masculine side, branded with mini entrance disks.

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.

I don't think anyone wants to hurt your sensitive feelings so I'll respond with the answer: yes, it's goofy.

I used to think my shed was untidy. ;)
I have given it one thorough cleaning in 37 years. If you always keep your truck and shop clean how do you have time to accomplish anything?

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.
