I don't like removing bees from a ceiling but this was our best option. We got a nice bit of bees and a great queen. Hope you enjoy the video!

Good job! I hate those ones where you risk dripping honey all over the carpet/furniture etc. I guess the Chinese buffet wouldn't deliver to the roof??

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."

OH God, when Schawee grabbed the umbrella from you I was yelling at him not to break it. That was a very funny video you made there JP. Tell me honestly JP, is the umbrella still in perfect condition?? Is it sticky from honey??

So does the homeowner now call a contractor to fix the ceiling?? You said that home is attracting beehives all the time, so they probably have to bee proof that home right JP, with that stuff you told me about

Still think this would make a great program on TV.

Thanks for sharing

Annette, the red parasol is still in pretty good shape!

Last year Schawee and I caulked and sealed the entire right side of the house but where this hive was located holes are too numerous for me to consider bee proofing. I'd rather she call in a contractor for the repairs/bee proofing.

You would have thought a good friend would have moved the ladder for you so you didn't have to step over hive on the way down.  :-D

There was so much smoke at the beginning of the video I thought it was a Cheech & Chong spinoff.  8-)

 :?  JP, I learn from every one of your videos. This time, I have a new question since I have request for a ceiling job between two bedrooms -- like yours, they have to line up to get into a tiny entrance under a deck outside.  They have been there for 2 years.  (We may need an umbrella inside.)

You have all the blinds closed and it looked like you were using a strap-on headlamp to look up into the joists.  Does that keep them calmer and more likely to not 'buzz' around the bedroom?

Thanks,
Mke

Mike, when they get inside, they will go for light sources, such as lights or windows. If you can open a window that is best. The head lamp I was using was on red light mode. Red lights don't attract them nearly as much as other light spectrums.

Thanks, JP!  I thought I knew why you were on red mode.  My LED 'lamp strap' just moved from my surf-fishing kit to my "cutout kit."   :)
