Swarm Catch Video-May 6, 2010
« on: May 15, 2010, 09:55:43 AM »
Swarm Catch

This was my second video recording. I zoomed in a little too close at times, still getting to know the camera.

The school kids in the background were little darlings. I wish I could have videoed them asking me questions about everything and anything related to bees. At one point there must have been twentyfive kids or so, all asking questions at the same time.

They never cease to amaze me with the various questions they come up with from their curious little minds. They will definitely challenge you, so make sure you're up on your bee knowledge!

Hope you enjoy the video!

Wow! Another Great Video! It is great that the kids were able to see you collecting the bees instead of an exterminator coming along and disposing of them. This sends out a very positive message and who knows how many future beekeepers you may have created.
Fantastic job and keep up the great work.

That's gotta be the best swarm capture video I've ever seen.
EDIT: I had to go back and facebook it, wanted my family to see how you handle them.

Thanks for the positive feedback folks. The children were simply wonderful and don't ya think their comments make for great background feedback?

JP that was a great swarm video and I learned so much from watching it.  Guess what?? I received my first swarm call when I was in New Orleans last evening when Aron and I were having dinner at the hotel. I had to give it away of course.

I just can't believe you can find the queen so easily. Obviously your calm demeanor has something to do with it.
