Jp, I noticed on this one also you did not wear any protective clothing. Does the sugar water spray help out a lot for the bees stinging? What ratio do you sue for the spray? Thanks and again thanks for the videos they are great. Not i=only is the quality good but they are also a good way of showing people how to colect swarms and do cut outs the propper way.
Shawn, I don't like to wind up with sticky bees and use sugar water sparingly. Mix is about 60/40 water to sugar. If the bees are hungry, the sugar water is a quick attitude adjuster.
I appreciate the feedback, not sure if what I do is the proper way but I usually can get the job done, one way or another.
I am always open to suggestions and constructive criticism. If anyone at any time has an observation for improvement feel free to voice it.
Removing bees is a craft that is honed through experience. Lots of mistakes, learning and eventually success. Having the right tools for the job is paramount.
I am always making mistakes and hopefully learning from them and I would like to think evolving my methods.
Of course when you get right down to it, its simply opening a cavity where a beehive is and removing them with as little stress as you can put on the bees.
A clean up job afterwards, sometimes a repair job and inevitably the most important part of it all, bee proofing the area so they can't get back in.
