Nice Little Bees Had To Go, April 22, 2009
« on: April 23, 2009, 12:10:25 AM »
They hadn't been there very long, but the people who own the building said these bees failed to pay their rent money! Eviction served today, from wall void to a deep.

They must have been fine with the move cause they didn't put up a fight, not even one tustle!

Great job once again. I always love looking at the comb. The color difference, they way they can build the comb so close together and still get between them, and how they use every space available.

I am thrilled the queen was in there and she's healthy. I told you they were dark, quite gentle aren't they?

You know what I like even more than shrimping?

Another great capture.  I look more forward to catching a swarm of my own someday - (not a swarm 'from' my own but any practice will do). (I got - purchased- 2 eyetalian/mutt hives and another I'm picking up Friday) I gotta look up the Florida statutes on feral bees.

Edit: clarified some ambiguity.

Give my regards to all the guys at the meeting. Say a special hello for me to Bud (keep him off the juice) and John Beemaster (I had not heard about how his wife is doing)  Have a great time there JP.

Well, this will most likely be one of my last posts til I get back from Bud's. I will show them the love at Bud's for you Annette.

I am very excited about this get together, I know we will have a ball.

I promise to take plenty of pictures.

Did you save the comb for the bees or did you just move them over to a new box and discard the old comb?
