Strip mall bees
« on: December 07, 2011, 07:24:42 PM »
This one was a rough one. We started it on Sunday and finished it on Monday.

The bees are a bit feisty and are still head butting in the bee yard. I'll give them a few weeks to calm down (I don't have to worry much about the drones mating with my stock right now) but if they're still hot I'll requeen!

"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."

A sweet sticky day.    Good job finding that queen.   I would have bet they were hot from being queenless.    If they stay hot, pinch her fast.   Great video.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

The plaza owner wanted them GONE!! Even if a trap out could have been an option I wouldn't have tried it. The hive beetles would have made a mess of things and this is not only an hour drive for us but in a bad area of town. The voices you hear in the background (although I cut most of them out) are the homeless guys that gathered around. Needless to say we kept a pretty close eye on 'em.

I was packin' a .45 and my sweet little kel-tec 9mm just in case :-D

when you do a cutout like this do you also do the building repairs?

We can do repairs (I'm a Certified Building Contractor too) but often the owners have a carpenter/maintenance person that will repair it for them at a better price.

get you some signs printed that say "CAUTION!  BEES!"  that'll take care of the homeless problem in the area while you're doing the cutout
