Yep, I had help from Schawee today. We removed bees from a shed wall and had a lot of fun. Never thought we'd find the queen, about gave up on her, she was in the bee vac, alive and well. We pulled a bunch of extremely thick honey comb sections and it was some good stuff, yeah y'all.

Good job guys!

How did you find the queen in the bee vac with thousands of bees inside?

I really hate using the bee vac this time of year but we were really desperate to find the queen and weeding through the remaining bees just wasn't cuttin' it.

We were pretty much settled on the idea that Schawee was leaving with a queenless hive and hoping the bees would be able to make a nice queen from what we gave them.

We had picked up and cleaned up and on a last whim decided to empty the vac which I hate to admit housed mostly sticky and a good bit of dead bees.

Dumped them out into an empty deep and lo and behold, there she was! Alive and well.

She looked exactly like the rest of the bees, except for the extended abdomen.

I had fun with Schawee and I hope we will be doing others together. Schawee is a good guy and I promise I wasn't trying to get him stung a thousand times when I pulled that piece of clap board that made all those bees jump on him!  grin

Was only able to make one hive since the space they had to work with was very limited and the bees used most of this space to pack on the honey.

Scott we talked about our other hobbies too, knitting and crocheting.  grin

How many stings did Schawee receive when you tried to pull apart that board?

Hey, watch out, if you go gator hunting with him, he just might disturb the water some when you're dipping your foot in to cool off!  grin

That video was so fabulous and glad you took the time to relax and eat the honey. To show us members how a cutout can be fun and relaxing also. I enjoyed every minute of it, and of course, will share it with Shawna (who by the way is fast becoming a devoted follower of yours) and the other beeks.

Seriously this is good stuff JP. Not trying to flatter you, it is so educational.

Annette, I spoke with Shawna, she's wonderful. I'm so happy you two hooked up. When y'all gonna do that removal?

I'll let Schawee say how many got him when I popped that wall board.  grin


Looks like we gonna do a few more soon, maybe even this Friday. I just spoke with Schawee and he's gonna check his schedule.

Thanks for the feedback everyone!

...JP

We went last night to get them and lo and behold, they had flown away the night before after being there for 12 days. We had 100 temps on Monday and we found the comb (quite a bit of it) laying on the ground. We assumed the comb melted during the hot day as the bush was in the hot sun,  and they absconded. We felt sad about it.

Well, don't feel too sad Annette, they probably found a nice tree to live in or someone's house.  Wink

I am a little sad though as I was hoping to see pictures and hear about the adventure. There's always next time.

JP, Didn't see you using the vacuum but did see you handling and working with the bees and bee comb without any veils or gloves.  How'd you guys pull that off without getting stung?

This colony of bees is very gentle. Schawee says they're doing great at his house and the queen is plump and a laying. He mentioned that he has gone in without using smoke (something I don't necessarily agree with).

I was just wondering if they can't make the bees mad by tear up their home, they sit there and eat their honey right there in front of them.

If its way overdone, bees will get worked up when too much smoke is applied.
