New Colony From Turn of the Century Home
« on: April 22, 2008, 12:58:03 AM »
Got a call today from a guy that had a colony living in a half wall on a back porch laundry room. It was an easy one. I even got to sit down while I did it. Wish they were all this easy. Got about 7 pounds of bee out of this one. My swarm box was heavy. I didn't take the photos the owner did. He got a little camera happy. Really nice guy! Enjoy all 60 photos!

looks like a new  hive.  wonder where the original is?
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. 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.....

Wow, I wish they all were just like that one! That would be a great area to make an observation hive.

Hey, those gloves look mighty familiar. ;)

Glad you're having fun and getting paid for it!

JP gets his at Home Depot, I think, but when I went to home depot out here they did not have this style.

I would love a pair if I can find them. Will have to look around further.
