Bloomingdale's Boca
« on: October 29, 2008, 11:48:43 PM »
One of the client's from my day job knew I was beekeeper and asked if I could give a home to a hive hanging out by the loading dock.  Everything went pretty well. There was a point where I was cutting and the blade grabbed and shook the hive it took about 15 minutes for the bees to gather back on the hive.

The one problem you won't see is at the end when I was making the last cut to fit it in the comb collapsed. The comb was at that age where it was either to young or old enough to withstand the vibrations. I took the bees and released them at the farm and let the hive get robbed. It wasn't a success but life can be like that.

Pics can be viewed here.

Brendhan, nice!!!  I think you are nuts to go up that high on that thingy (whatever it is called).  That is a long ways up in the air, I would have been puking!!!  I have seen the cut outs and comb, but this is the first time I have seen comb made by bees in the open air like that, what a cool sight!!!  You keep up that hard work, when I saw your pics of you doing that it made me feel proud of you.  I guess having met you in person, I now have a different affinity for you, my forum friend!!!  Have the most wonderful and awesomely great day, Cindi
