Old Algiers Bees Removal-Agust 26, 2010
« on: August 27, 2010, 10:38:00 AM »
This colony was about the same size as the Lakeview bees colony but with more bees and a beautiful queen. Had to lug all my equipment down a long alley way to get to these folks.

Great video.  I can't believe that you complained about a little 3/4" plywood being heavy.   Don't you live in hurricane country, you need that weight to keep the hive put.    And with the rubber bands on the wrist, my 4 year old has been wearing silly bands in the wrist for a year now. 

How old was the house there.  The lap board seemed to be falling apart.  I did not know with the tar paper behind it.

So Schawee taught your daughter how to wear rubber bands, huh?  :-D

I don't think the house has had a coat of paint in twenty years. I would guess the house to be around eighty years old.


If in a tornado one can always hide under Schawee's hives, the strongest one could never lift the weight of those bottom boards alone!  :-D

Tommy, I have four bee yards and around eighty hives, some of those are nucs. Schawee has been helping me quite a bit and all of the ones I/we have removed in the last few months have gone to him.

Yeah Irwin, remember Schawee said he gonna have his initiation video up this weekend!  :evil:

Oh, hey, I'm always makin' some Liz unhappy. Liz is my wife's name as well.

But Irwin and Liz, I said I got happy after a while on the video. Having your face knee deep in bees is a sure cure to lifting someone's spirits.

The bees turned my frown upside down.

But, hey, thanks for caring!  ;)

This was really a nice video and I was laughing a lot watching this. JP I don't think I have ever seen you in a bad mood.

I truly enjoyed the music on this one. I have to ask you what is the name of that beautiful music at the end. I am wearing a stereo headset when I listen to your videos, because I can hear things better.  Well this was amazing because I heard the bees buzzing in one ear and then it went to my other ear. Stereo, fabulous sound and that music sounded so so good with my headset on.

I also liked how you pulled away from the hive with the camera and the scene got smaller and smaller. You are playing around a lot now and it all is working out well.

But I know for a fact, that "your" Liz is a happy girl.

Take care
Annette

Annette, the music pieces are clips from Imovie. First one is called Indulge, second is called Investigation.
