I like doing cut-outs, but I love catching swarms!

Yesterday, I went through fourteen hives and pulled some beautiful, wonderfully tasting honey. Many had honey almost fully capped so I will be pulling more soon, yeah!

This evening I removed bees from a garage that is being torn down. I started the job late, so I vacuumed the bees and will treat them like a huge package. Almost positive the queen is in the second box I vacuumed.

Guy can now tear his garage down.

JP,

As usual, great pictures and a great job! Do you take the pictures yourself, or have a helper that does the photography for you? If you do both, then I am really jealous.

Again, I am struck with envy! You get the structures that are going to be torn down....I get the ones that they want to keep or restore!  grin I would love to rip into an old building to remove a colony! I got to tease ya a bit on these swarms and cutouts....you really do well on them and have the proof/pics to prove it.

I looked a an old farm house out in the boonies yesterday that will require a major cutout. It has had colonies in it for over 50 years the owner said! If I can remember to take pictures while the cutout is done, and if I can figure out how to post pictures on here...got to read that part again rolleyes....I will show you some of the worst photography skills ever and 'I hope' some nice bees!  grin

This old farm house is being remodeled and needs new siding. The colony extends most of the way across the front of the house and under the porch, which has the old stype weighed windows and of course, the bees built comb around the window in all of those tight spots as well.

My camera is fully automatic, about all I do is aim and point, for close ups I do macro.

I take them all myself but really, its the camera doing all the work, but thanks for the kudos anyway!

JP, yummy, yummy, yummy, you'll have honey in your tummy.  Lucky you.  Sounds like you gonna hit the mother load in honey stuff.  Good, you have worked hard to make an enormous apiary, smiling.  Nice pictures by the way.  Beautiful days, to love and live, health.  Cindi
