The thing is, these external colonies usually have some really disfigured and unusable comb. We had one piece that looked like a dang corkscrew! I believe we wound up with eight frames of brood on this one.

The next day Schawee set them up in either two or three boxes. He told me he was going to go through them today and that they appeared to be booming.

Oh, this tree is a Magnolia tree.

Good one again JP and Schawee. Apart from the job on the bees any two blokes who get me laughing at 6.30 AM makes my day, never get enough of the Bickering Bee Keepers. Is this the first time Schawee missed the queen??

Schawee,

I was just foolin' about but I have notice a "slight increase" shocked starting from the older extraction video's up the most recent. Smiley
Despite that, (it happens to us all), the bee club here in SF love watching your video's!!!

Ok, folks just to set the record straight, my buddy Schawee has been steadily losing weight ever since Burger Delight closed its doors.  grin  I'm the one whose weight fluctuates on a regular basis.

His wife even told me how worried they were when for one solid week they would find him asleep outside Burger Delight's doors mumbling something like "Can't you make the shake bigger!" "Got to have more shake....Got to have more shake.... Got to have more shake...  grin "
