bee cutout on news
« on: June 27, 2009, 12:47:54 AM »
I was doing this cut out Friday morning in a small town when the news showed up. By far not the most typical of cutouts I got stung worse than ever before doing a cutout I got it about 20 times even with a golden bee suit. They was hot from start to finish on this one. Even when I got them home they was still aggressive The pastor being interviewed was well over 100 yards away when the bees found them even the reporter and camera man got stung. I'm going to send in a sample of these to test if the are AHB

never take the top off a hive on a day that you wouldn't want the roof taken off your house

To me, that looked like a bear of a cutout.  I will quit complaining about some of mine.   :-DNice work, and nice video.  Even if it is a church, I hope you were paid well.  Nice work.

Not sure if that hourly rate looks worth it.  Looks like a pretty hairy one.  I am guessing, though, that you were well over the 3 hr mark.  Again, nice work. :)

I didnt go ahead and hive the bees from the cutout. I had about a cup full left and boy was they still agressive. I sent in samples to the bee lab.  I will keep you all posted on the results
