The Bickering Beekeepers Get Er Done!

Bickering at its finest folks.  :-D

We removed two hives that were between floor joists of a work trailer. The trailer was very low to the ground so we went in through the floor.

Before that we caught a queenless swarm of about Two lbs I'm guessing.

Fun stuff.  Watching the way y'all go through internal floors and walls gives me the confidence to do it when the chance presents itself.  The banter reminds me of brothers.

Listen to others but make your own decisions. That way you own the results.

Fun video guys and glad to see you back together again. I do have a question about this removal. Why did you just remove the comb but not tie into frames??? Was it all empty comb??

JP you need to rest and don't let Schawee push you to do more than you can. (I have to watch out for you guy :-D)

That was a great photo of a very cute baby. Looks kind of like Emil.

Take care
Annette
