Well ,J.P. I'm not as photogenic as you fellas are , so I don't video my removals. I do take pics once in awhile and post them when I can.
Like I said earlier, and on my website, bee removal is about more than technique and tools. It's about creativity and being able to adapt quickly to different situations and enjoying the bees.
Your videos demonstrate all those things. In "training" my wife to be my bee buddy on bee removal calls, I intentionally have had her watch your videos to get an idea of what goes on and how to take things in stride and have fun with it.
Nothing prepares someone to do bee removals like actually getting in there and doing it. Videos like yours are a great example of that. Seeing how often the bees add a quick change of plans due to how they build comb further in and what surprises a house or building might have because of add ons or how people build things different giving you different things to deal with every time.
It's hard to 'script' that for a 'real' educational type video and communicate the fun at the same time.
Also, it helps you and schawee have a great time playing off one another. The umbrella (parasol) video captures that perfectly as does the shrimp and corn cooking video. There' s a dynamic that's better than anything hollywood could write there.
I'm sure it's obvious that yes, I am impressed with the videos. More than that,I think your videos capture that feeling most of us have about bees. getting that swarm or cutout is like being a kid at christmas.
btw, I really don't watch very much tv at all for real. I'm too busy working bees, trying to get my business to pick up or on the computer, which is just as bad tv in a lot of ways.
If you fellas ever come up to Omaha, give me a holler. I'll take you up to Zesto's where you can get a real ice cream shake.
