What you didn't see on the you tube video my customer made of me removing his colony, titled Gone With The Bees, was me bumping into the medium and knocking it on the ground upside down. I kept my cool while cursing myself under my breath while I put everything back to normal. Somehow I didn't mess things up too badly and the bees didn't even think twice about my act of clumsyness. Should have been re-titled Bad News Bears Bee Removal Service!!
Another time, after I had driven 25 minutes and spent another 15 setting things up, I managed to sqoosh the queen within mere seconds of a cut-out. I made my first cut into sheetrock, grabbed a piece, bent it back, and my first look revealed the queen smooshed between the sheetrock I was holding and the top plate, talk about bad beginnings!!!
Hey man, stuff happens like they say, just have to keep on truckin'!
