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.
