Too cool...just too cool

Scott
"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."

Sorry about that I had chili and a beer for lunch.


You covered both the gas and the burp.  :-D

Nice video.

When was the last time you inspected that hive? I'm guessing the last week or so, that any bees being seen, were probably scout and "swarm guards" that will protect and hold a swarm trap location until the swarm is issued.

It was a little over a week she had a nice pattern but was a bit small. I think they made a new queen and they were just getting started back up. I was getting ready to put them in a five frame deep nuc when the swarm took over. And yes now that I watched the video a second time yes I think I did have them both covered. And I say excuse me to all that watched the video.
