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 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.
