Well the camera worked this time I am soo happy here are some pics..................

IT went well I would suck up a bunch and then dumped them into a supper.......

They all started to fan the top abter the third bucket so im assuming that I got the queen then. 

It started to rain right as I was finishing up and all (alot) of the forragers made it back to the hive I reckon and I was able to suck them up and take with me.  This is TOOOOOO much fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The names David and no I have used a bee vac three times now the first two were without one.....NEVER again........ shocked  I have just reciently quit beeing a bee killer by keeping them in the bucket.  I now suck for about 5-10 min., then dump them into their new home.  I need to dump about 4-5 times depends.  Yah the comb was REALLY soft but I was able to fill 4 frames with the comb.  Then I kept about a ball the size of a softball to try and make some candles?? Well see how that goes.  I LOVE this hobby.
