Filmed this with my iphone, so no tripod, just some handheld footage I pieced together. I swear I think my iphone takes better video than my cannon!

Hope y'all enjoy it!

You make it look so easy JP.    And did you use a special program to make your intro look super old?      Thanks for the video.

Man, good catch Allen! I didn't expect anyone to pick up on that as it seemed somewhat subtle to me. You guessed it though, it was an option I chose with my imovie program. Double nuc for these, they had a good bit of bees.

If y'all want a real messy removal to do than choose one like this one! Had to cut through sheetrock, then plaster. Plaster dust friggin' everywhere! Also done on a stairwell with limited space. The guys you see were a big help with keeping the area somewhat clean and workable.

Schawee, you older than dirt dude!  grin

Enjoyed the video JP. A friend of mine was called by his neighbor last Friday. His neighbor said that one one his hives had a huge swarm in his tree. He headed home to collect it but it was gone before he got there. Seasons starting. I hope I get a lot of calls.

Don

Don, most days things are fine. I have two herniated disks. One in the upper neck one in my lower back. Many people have herniated disks & I've run into a small handful of people in my position. Out of the blue things sometimes act up for no apparent reason. Could be because I slept wrong, stood up wrong, the weather. Sometimes I have to use a cane for a short while because my lower back will get shooting pains when I put any weight on my right leg but this usually passes within minutes, sometimes hours. I get headaches when my neck stiffens up. This happens most when I'm looking up working off of a ladder or squirrel hunting. Haven't worked off of ladders lately but the season is upon me so here goes nothing. I keep Ibuprofen with me which helps tremendously to keep inflammation down.

Now I bet you are sorry you asked!  grin

Nothing like a video from JP to forget about the 2 feet of snow sitting in my yard and get me thinking about Springtime and beekeeping.  Smiley

Sorry that your back is still messed up, all from the accident?


Changing subjects, noticing those very dark bees, curious what percentage of swarms and cutouts you do, you think are from long term feral colonies, vs. somewhat recent beekeeper escapees, say less than 3 years. Have any guesses?

Don

I'd only be guessing trying to answer that question with any authority Don but it is amazing how many times it is pointed out to me that there's another hive next door or down the street, either in a building or tree or some other man made thing.

I look at the color of the comb on cut outs to give me somewhat of an idea of how long I believe they've been there. If the comb is almost black, I believe its at least 2.5 yrs of age. I've done a few where the comb was as dark as asphalt & I could not cut it with a knife.

I did one about 4-5 yrs ago uptown New Orleans that the guy swears had been there 15 yrs.
