Wow, that was a big hive!  How was your survival rate using the bee vac on such a hot day for such a long job?  I know I've heard you say in the past that you don't like to use the vac when it's really hot out.

I am using pool vacuum hoses now thanks to Schawee. They are really fantastic, large interior and smooth. Also added regulators to my Walter Kelly's and survival rate is extremely high. I'd say less than a 1% loss, which is phenomenal for any bee vac.

Good job guys. I would think the pounds would just melt off you two with all the heat and humidity down there, don't know how  manage to keep up your girlish figures?  grin .

So, schawee did you trim the combs to keep them horizontal in the frames, like you taught me  evil, or did you follow the slope of the roof line?

For a coonass, got to say, Schawee is kind of a picky eater!  grin I brought him to Wholefoods for the grilled shrimp wrap. He wanted the chinese buffet but I talked him out of it.  Wink

I told him we were gonna eat good, he insisted I tell him what we were eating, then I had to tell him what was in the wrap. Then he had to ask the cook what was in it as well!

Long story short, two days later we're talking on the phone and he says "when we going back for another shrimp wrap?" Said it was all he was thinkin' about!  grin

Another great lesson Video
Ouch on the between the eyes although it seems you didn't
look to Chinese eyed from it,but thats what might have given
you the craven (thinking you would look like Daniel Son's Mentor)

1% man that's good I have only done a few with vacuum
 The vacuum really puts a hurt-en on the bees
I was looking at clear smooth hose at Ace Hardware
I guess I will go too the pool supply
I really try to limit the suction but in your videos,It seems you really are picking them up
and @1% loss shocked I barley get them picked up(low volume suction) and my loss is 50%
I was just saying I may not vac no longer with this type loss
Now back to the drawing boards
I also just built a Robo clone opposed to a box containment and see you use a containment Vac
Decisions,decisions

Thanks for the Video

Tommy, bees off comb are much easier to vacuum than bees on comb. Ones on comb seem to dig in for dear life!

I have all kinds of hoses, one, a smooth one I purchased from an industrial hose supply warehouse. Works ok, but very heavy!

Schawee, Hardwood and JP now only use pool vacuum hose.

Nice video!  I saw JP and Schawee on there, but you never introduced the guy in the bee suit!! I'm not sure I've seen him before... grin

I too have a Robo-vac and use a pool hose.  I found that if I throw something soft in the bottom to break their rapid slide down the tube, something like pine needles or shredded paper, that it works much better, I very rarely see any dead bees in there.

I have good luck with 2 1/2" smooth interior woodworkers dust collection hose attached to my robo bee vac. Took time to hand file down all the raised edges on all the conection fittings. I make sure to keep the hose as straight as possible and I try very hard not to get honey on the bees. I seldom see more than 10 - 20 dead bees after each job. Last Saturdays job which was an inside removal where I used the vacuum from the get go I didn't see but maybe 5 dead bees total.

I've had bees in my nose before but my number one fear is a bee going deep into my ear canal and stinging me there. I've had several try to go there but I've managed to change their minds!  grin

Why do friends find it so hysterical when you get stung?  It seems like they are wishing, perhaps even praying you will get stung for their amusement. With friends like that who needs enemies, right?  grin

Right Schawee?  grin

And don't think its not reciprocal buddy!  evil

I think it was in a post from Bjorn one time that I read, "Go ahead and laugh at me when I get stung, because I am sure gonna laugh at you if you get stung". Thought is was pretty fitting.....and amusing.

Yeah, when I get a really painful sting, I'll yell out to Schawee, "Man that one hurts Schawee!" His typical response is well, "what you want me to do about it?"

No love at all folks!  embarassed

And when that solitary bee out in the middle of the pond at Bud's stung me on the temple for no apparent reason, Schawee & Bud ganged up on me like there was no tomorrow!

They had a ball with that one folks. I can laugh about it now (sort of) but at the time the only ones laughing were my two buddies Bud & Schawee.

Of course if Schawee had taken that sting Bud & I would not have let Schawee hear the end of it!  grin
