Another external colony on a tree branch folks! This one was fun. Would have been even more fun if closer to the ground but still I'll take an external removal any day over one inside of some structure.

JP, watching you cut the comb it looks like your cutting it at an angle in regards to the way it "looks" like it is hanging.  Is that due to camera angle or Huh?  It just looked odd to me.

I'm just curious, when you do a cutout like this how many stings do you normally get?  I mean, when you shook that honey comb off that you were letting the bees rob...there was a cloud of bees right in your face!!!  No stings???

Nice job, btw!!!

Thanks for my morning cutout/swarm vid fix.  Goes with coffee like a doughnut.

Ed, I noticed that as well, it was just the camera angle. Jack, coffee, bees & donuts go very well together, don't you think?  grin Reminds me of the donut shop that had bees flying in the back door & drive through window, but that's another story...

JP,
Do you ever find hives like this one that survived the winter or do the open hives end up being killed when the weather goes below freezing?
Another great video. Seems like you are getting one per day.

Jim, believe it or not they actually survive winter down here. I did one two years ago that I looked at the prior January, I believe it was. I went back following spring and removed them. It was a decent sized hive rather close to the ground that actually grew in size between when I saw it first & when I removed it. We had record cold days that winter & the hive still survived! That amazed me! I did one underneath a porch that was completely exposed other than it was right inside the porch opening. They had been there three years. Of course we do have rather mild winters compared to most places.

Allen, either they're becoming more common or I'm just getting more calls for them now. Who knows for certain. I will say this though. This year I shook more swarms than I can ever recall that had started building right on the spot. Ones that had been there at least five days.

Another good 1 Bro! Our flow is still on although slow so robbing is only an issue in a couple of yards. I imagine we're still a week or two away from robbing season.

BTW, got my internet back up and running this morning...I can resume my Beemaster's addiction!
