JP & Schawee Remove Alot Of Bees-Part One
« on: March 30, 2011, 12:16:45 AM »
Like the title says folks, my buddy and I worked all day and night to remove seven colonies of bees, two of which were new swarms. It was a lot of fun & a lot of work but we got it done.

Here's part one.

Can you tell me a little about your bee jacket you have on.  Who makes it and where is it available?

Does Fedex bottle lemongrass oil in those trailers or what?   LA bee must really love trailers.   Can't wait to see some cutting out going on.   I wonder just how many hives are in the area around that complex?  Must have good forage around there.

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."

I was wondering about this this morning, What does Fedex use to was up the trailers?   Maybe some kind of lemon stuff that is a good attractant?   May need to look into this.

If this week is anything more hectic than last week, I am sure they are not even getting time to sleep catching those bees.
