Nice work, JP. It is inspiring to see those bees and their work. Even more so to see your work on removing/saving them.
Even though I learned some hard lessons (that I should have figured out without costing the bees so much) this winter, I am looking forward to my first removal of the year. I had a call already, but explained that it is a little to chilly yet.
Did the cages in the last few pics come with your vac? I am guessing you had to buy extra, but were they from the same manufacturer? I am about a day away from ordering the same vac. (i think it is the same based on an older post)
Anyway, nice and inspiring work.
Yes, its the one offered from Walter Kelley. It comes with two inner boxes, I purchased an extra one. I have two, one older, kind of worn out. So all in all I have six inner cages.
Irwin, I was thinking of you the whole time. I think certain segments of a cut out would be interesting but videos of swarms (shaking them) I believe would be most interesting, as removals take so dang long.
Hope to be getting that new camnera soon.
BTW, I see the main page of this forum has been revamped. Honeybee removal is now in Beekeeping Learning center. No more General Beekeeping section. Took me a while to find Honeybee removal, had to click onto Beekeeping Learning center to see that it is now within this heading.
