John, well, I liked the story, but this was funnneeee.  What is with the myDVD thingy?  Not to be mean or nothing, this just doesn't sound very nice what I am going to say.  When you make a picture in a post, do a preview of your post first, what I see in your post is a funny little thing of that picture, it made that smile come to my face.......have the most beautiful and wonderful day, Cindi

Thanks Sharon, little John's theory is that we have such a diversified gene pool due to our many feral colonies. He thinks this may have a bearing on the CCD issue.

Hey Keith, love the new avatar, now, that's what I'm talkin' about!!  Go tigers!!!

Yes, LA is CCD free.  So is Louisiana.  And, no I'm not being redundant.  LA properly defined is Lower Alabama. Smiley

I think that JP is onto something about the broad genetic gene pool.  I fellow keeper and I have been thinking the same thing about our area.  We have a large feral population as well.

Litle John is the one that raised this point, which is a pretty good one.

 heres the rest of the post Ive been working on for the last hour. At this point i dont know what Ive done or what will happen. I hope I didnt send any X rated pics!..Well,..I'll celebrate victory IF ANYTHING came out!

Yo JP!
 Speaking of that cutout Undecided
 It was a goose chase....I mean we went there(demolition site) and we decided to bring the entire 15 ft box home and tear it open and turn this into a salvage operation.
 The people at the site were only seeing robber bees getting the honey. There was no life inside at all. The bees must have left after the box was dropped from 2 stories up.
I assume this hive had bee abandoned for some time as the hive smelled like good English mead. The honey was REAL dark but tasted ok to me Smiley
 I told Paul we were probably taking a chance letting our bees clean this up, as there was an inch or more of dead bees on the bottom of the box, but it was pretty much too late when we got home......In 30 minutes there must have been 60,000 bees flying in with their spoons in hand!....I bet there was a hundred lbs of honey still in the comb.
Also, The comb was really dirty(coated in dirt dust) and almost black!
 I figure at least a week till the box gets cleaned out and thats with me turning it every 2 days or so.
 I'll try to send a pic........I'll be right back




Ok,....As you can see,(I hope), we did have to do a little work on getting the right wall down...Took us about 15 minutes...We told the owner we only extracted bees, we didnt patch up the holes afterwards....He seems a little upset grin...But so were we,,,No bees!......I guess I better get a big shovel just in case eh'?

heres our end result....

Hey JP,

Excellent job man....  Sorry I'm late to the party, but swarm season has finally hit up North here and it has hit hard.   I watched it slowly move from the South up the country as you guys kept posting your removals, so I knew it was coming (and hoping).

How many LA's are there in the USA?  So far we have LA: Los Angeles, LA: Louisiana, LA: Lower Alabama, and LA: Lower Alaska (aka the panhandle).  Any more?

JBF, two good things.  your bees are getting fed, and you can probably salvage some of that wax.

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.....

John, nice pics, but if that took you an hour to get that together, we need to talk.  I think that you need a little bit of help with making your picture posting more easier for you.  Please PM me, and I will try to help you to get things rollin' a little faster.  That is too much time for you to spend on pictures, I know you would have other things that you would rather be doing, hee, hee.  And the pictures were too small, couldn't see them very well, sorry, not to be mean, but the truth must be told  Wink Smiley Smiley Smiley  Beautiful and most wonderful day in our greatest of lives on this earth.  Cindi

LA can also mean Lower Arkansas.  That's what we called that strange part of the state growing up.  Things were different down there.  I grew up right on the line between the hills and the Delta.  Man I miss that area.
