So much fun today. You guys are so funny together. Glad it was successful in the end and you had your shake as a reward.

You probably just got the shake girl fired with that video.    We won't tell nobody....... But we might put it on the internet.   And it was great to see how Schawee practices finding the queen by letting her go and finding her over and over.   Practice makes for a better queen finder. 

And can you imagine what the neighbors were thinking as these 2 grown men videotaping something with oranges and bees?   grin

I just now remembered this. While we were transferring the bees the little mad bombers showed up. I could hear them across the fence, one of them said "Hey, the hive is gone!"

They were very disappointed that pitching practice had been permanently cancelled.  grin

Bulldog, I don't have any secrets for finding the queen and to be honest sometimes I don't or don't need to.

If there's any kind of tip I could give for finding queens it would be to look at the big picture.

Instead of looking just for her look at how the bees are acting, you know by now they will face her in most situations, look for circles or semi circles of bees and you just may find her right in the middle of them.

Also do a quick glance at a mass of bees, run your eyes all around, back and forth instead of trying to just see her.

A lot of times she'll pop out at you, kind of like trying to find Waldo.

Don't know if this helps at all, but I hope it does.

Honey milk shakes? That sounds pretty good! Will have to ask Schawee what he thinks about that. Any questions about shakes should really be directed towards him as he is the expert on shakes.  Wink

Haven't heard from him in a few days, must be knee deep in shakes!  grin

Honey milk shakes?   Now that is something different.  Replace the sugar in the shake with honey, or make it into the main flavor?   Cut out the vanilla? I might have to do some thinking on that, but it sounds good.

Heard from Schawee about an hour or so ago, called to tell me he was having a vanilla shake!

He just had to rub it in!  grin

If the shakes take off, I want a percentage, since it was my idea...LOL  Several years ago I experimented with honey ice cream.  It was good, but for some reason, I never made it after that.  Thinkin' I might just have to dust off that ol' ice cream machine soon.

K9, Schawee is about a 45 minutes drive from me. Burger Delight is 12 miles further up from his house.

K9, if you make the drive, I suggest you get at least two shakes. One when you get there, then one for the road.  Wink
