Not a real big hive but got the queen and stood on the ground today, no overhead 20' deal with honey dripping everywhere. A nice in your face vertical hive. I like, yes. Big plump queen. I hate my new camera!!! I can't take a good pic with one hand and hold a frame with attached broodcomb with queen in the other. They just come out all fuzzy. I even had this guy at the site take pictures and he obviously doesn't know what a camera is or how to use one cause I got jack, diddly squat outta that dude. So we are left with one measily kind of fuzzy pic of the queen I got from this hive. After I did the removal I brought them to my main beeyard where I have 12 hives now. Hope you enjoy the somewhat unspectacular pics of this one. Perhaps the next one will be more interesting. http://picasaweb.google.com/pyxicephalus/February262008

JP,

You seem to do tons of removals.  Sure hope I can get to that level in the future.  I really enjoy your posts and pics of the bees.

Keep up the good work man.

thats just beautiful.  i wouldn't mind calls like that.  smiley

what kind of camera did you get? i got a nikon coolpix last year. it was not expensive so i didn't mind if it got a bit sticky.  i got it because it was cheap!  it took me a bit to figure out some of the settings and get good pictures.  it was different from my trusty olympus which was to expensive to cover with honey and gunk.  this year i'm going to try setting up the tripod out by the hives when i dig around.

More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Thanks Mike!

Kathy I have a casio now, my other camera which I love is a Nikon 3100 cool pix but the battery holder thingy broke! The guys in chat are giving me some good tips now for the new camera, so hopefully I can get some better ones of the queen next time.

Tony, we haven't had snow here since 2004 and that was rare, time before that was perhaps 1996 or 97.

JP, That cut out looked great. The comb seems to be well formed and in colums down lower but the top of that one looked like it was fanned out and flat. Just wondering. I would like to understand these hives a little better so when I get the first one, I can at least talk like I know what I am doing?Huh
Also, you are getting a lot of hives there close together, do you have any problems with that many that close??
Just curious

PS Very rude about the snow comment. Have a heart will you!!

They also have a tendancy to make comb with what space they are given and what obstacles there are in the void space they have to work around. In a hive body they have two options, one straight comb, two crosscomb. According to the fatbeemman lots of crosscombs are an indicator for a poor queen.

Great Job on the removals! I constantly look to your photo gallery to see where you will go next.   I noticed that you do a lot of work on the west bank.  My mom lives in Terrytown.  Have a kid brother who is a Sgt for the Jefferson Parish Sherriffs office.  I unfortunately left New Orleans when I graduated from high school in 1991 (Brother Martin).
But I digress.  I actually had a question.  Are most of these cutouts from post Katrina homes aka flood damage?  I was curious how any mold in the walls or any other moisture might have an effect on where the girls choose to make their home. 

Keep up the great work.  Business seems to be real good.
And where is that beeyard?  It seems awful dry for South Louisiana.
