"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Nice videos.

Although, it does miss that comedic relief that is so common in your videos JP. Tell Schawee to make a drive for a guest appearance!  :-D

Thanks for the video Hardwood. I learn something with each one.

Thank you so much.  We're getting more and more calls for cut outs, and though I haven't tried one on my own yet, it's nice to have videos like yours to help learn how.

Thanks

or to me.  i don't scream, but i can expand her vocabulary.....and we can see who can run faster!
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Wish I had someone to kiss my boo-boos.   Do you always screw  your tops down when you are moving them?

I noticed that too. It looked like you screwed AND taped the top down.

What kinda vacuum do you use? The hose looked like pool vacuum hose.

Allen, no I don't screw tops on usually but in this case I was pressed for equipment (we were called out for a single colony and didn't bring enough gear to handle two). I ended up scrounging some tempered hardboard for tops and tore out some window screen for bottoms. Luckily we had two deep boxes with us as we had planned on using the bushkill style vac.

The house is being remodeled and the shed was slated to be torn down the following day so we didn't have the luxury of leaving the boxes to catch the returning foragers or we wouldn't have used the vacuum at all.

specialk, I had hoped the tape would hold but that's the "low tack" style and wouldn't stick, hence the screws.

The vac is one of three different styles that I've made with three changeable catch boxes and is my personal fav. It's smaller and lighter than the bushkill style and is easier to use on ladders etc. I put a shoulder strap on it for such cases. The problem being that if you vacuum too many bees they will be separated from the brood so it's important to re-combine them quickly.

Yes, that's and old scrounged pool hose...works great. It's relatively smooth on the inside and comes in 30' lengths so you can cut the size you need.

Sounds great! Do you have a link to the plans you used to build your vac, or pictures of it?

that was fun to watch and you have one brave women there with you.  I think she got it on the elbow and the head. I wish I could be as brave as you guys, but I am just not ready to give up my veils and gloves.

Thanks for sharing Scott and Peggy.

Well done!  Thanks for sharing both videos.  I love watching and learning how other do cut outs.  It allows me to learn much more quickly in ways other than via my mistakes.
