Don't forget your empty frames and rubber bands to save as much comb as possible.

I consider those tools of the trade.  :-D

Wow how wonderful and look at all of that comb. And so late in the year. They say Fl has been warm and dry though and looks pritty green. I have on my wish list to get a few wooden Nuk boxes and a few cardboard one for swarms. That way they can be locked in and I can haul in my Highlander. When I get the hitch put on the SUV I will get a little flat bed trailer. I am jelous that you are getting bes I have to wait till April and most of my thing will be blooming already. Oh and be careful as that is steep and that platform for all of the work you are going to have to do I hope it is wide enough .

Thank you, Florida is wonderful.
Yes, that roof is really steep. I am not afraid of heights but that roof had my attention because when it is wet it is slippery as all get up. The platform is 32x32 inches. It will be enough for me to stand properly and I can put the hive boxes on the edge toward the roof and they fit perfect. So it should be fine.

If it goes badly my next picture will be of me in a cast with lots of bee stings.  ;)

 Great pictures!
     Just a quick question? Ferrel Bee Tax Credit? What is that? And how do you qualify? Any break from Uncle Sam would be great! I never got that lucky, if you could say that, to find a hive like that. All of mine were cut outs, this past year. For a newbee, it was a challenge, alot of work but had alot of reward with the bees that I was luckey to get. Be carfull and dont get hurt. Good luck!

Harder to move too--maybe a knights suit of armor would be better.  Hey, if all else fails he can always put a ladder on top of the cab of his pickup--that way, if he drops anything it's already loaded and ready to go.

I also use fire fox. The pictures are still there for me and they do work when I click on them.

OK, so this is interesting.  I cannot see the pictures, nor even thumbnails, all I see is a blank space too.  Weird how some can see them and others cannot.   :?  Have a great and wonderful day.  Cindi

Hey Cindi,

I've got it. You have to disable the pop-up blocker.

In Firefox go to top menu bar and drop down the menu from 'Firefox' and select 'Preferences' and select 'Content' and uncheck the pop-up blocker

Remember to reinstate it when you are done.

Not sure why? Perhaps he loaded them on not using the Image Shack??

I dunno

cheers

Pop up Blocker? What pop up blocker? I never have pop ups. Didn't know there was something to enable or disable.

I honestly don't know why some of you are receiving images and some are not. My DNS checks out and I had someone from england try to access my server with no issues. He can see the thumbnails and click the images. So I am kind of at a loss as to why some of you are having problems.

I am sorry to hear that some of you are not able to get through. I will see if I can't also get some of them onto image shack
