Needed the monkey man on this one as the upper porch of the little building we removed the bees from was missing its center! To get from one side to the other, you had to shimmy across the opening on about an eight inch wide strip of narrow porch deck.

Emil glided across it, I was much less graceful!  grin

Bees were a little pissy and unpredictable. I'm glad to give them to Emil.  grin

BTW, I videoed this in high definition on my same camera but not certain the quality is any much better. Let me know what y'all think, OK?

Make him work them mean bees.    Great video.   One question, when you set up the camera out in front of the house, you ever worry about it just walking off?   Hate for you to loose the camera.

I do NOT know how you knew you hadn't vacuumed the queen. I would have simply assumed I had her in one of those vacuum boxes. How on earth did you know she was hiding out?

Liz, I wasn't 100% certain we hadn't vacuumed the queen, but as the evening progressed it was evident something was going on in the void space around the last piece of comb, particularly between those three 2 x 4's and the roof sheathing.

From observing bees on my cut outs I've learned to pay close attention to what they're trying to tell me and it became apparent that she was likely still in there somewhere.

It was by observing their actions that I grew confident she was still holed up in there. FYI, when the remaining bees are acting very runny and are spread out all over the place without focus, that is generally a sign that she's not there.

When they move together in a specific direction as an entity, that is usually a sign she is in there, somewhere.

I feel confident she would have come out of hiding and all bees would have been on the last comb section come nightfall but we decided to take a more aggressive approach by smoking them some to see if we could run her out and that was the charm on this one.

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."
