Pop up removal
« on: May 15, 2011, 12:20:49 AM »
Well, we finally got around to removing the bees from the pop up camper we hauled to the rehab yard last year. It was a fun date for both of us! Somehow we missed the queen when we were transferring the brood (oops) but it all worked in the end.

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. 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."

Couple of things.

First, at 6:11, Peggy, "Owe, #$@K!"  :lau:

Red is the color, its got to be red!  :-D

I'm hoping you added at least a medium after you shook them all, seemed like wayyyy too many bees for just one deep.

Great point to mention about having enough bees to cover the brood, was just telling Emil that two days ago on the one we just did.

Can you imagine the potential robbing frenzy we may have had at Bud3s with all that dripping honey?

Lastly, great job & team work!

It's going to the scrap yard! The floor, ceiling, walls...you name it are all falling apart.

Trailers I have....too many if anything. Space in the back yard...not so much.

I dropped a shallow super full of honey Saturday putting it into the freezer, without getting stung, then had words.

OH Scott and Peggy, that was fun to watch. Very messy. I guess you just left the remaining honey that was dripping for the bees to rob out??

I enjoyed the little umbrella's as well, although in that heat, don't think they would do any good to help you.

You are a great team together. Peggy you seem like a very peaceful person and a good compliment to Scott's macho manliness.

Thanks for sharing
Annette
