"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."

Thanks for the tip about smoking where you got stung.  Never considered that.

I'm glad ya'll liked it! Schawee, I grabbed the queen but when I opened my hand to show the owner she flew. I snatched her out of the air as she flew circles around my head. Then the owner's friend wanted a picture so I opened up again and this time she flew off over the roof :'(

Luckily she flew back to the cluster and this time Peggy grabbed her and we put her straight into the vac box (didn't have any queen catchers or cages with us).

That one looked like a lot of fun. This one is proof positive you have to have patience & perseverance to do a proper job. Those who want to be in and out in two hours should find other work.  :-D

That one reminded me of the one Schawee & I did in the diesel engine where she flew off about 75' away.

Great job you two & BTW loved the footage as you were filming down in the cavity. Kinda looked like an esophagus lined with bees!

Scott, do you and peg go in and evaluate the temperament of the bees first before you stat the removal ? I ask because of concern about not knowing if they are Africans or not. Nice footage and good catch with a mid air grab.

Sparky, we always walk around them and pick a few up before we start but almost all the one's we run across (even the one's we've tested positive for AHB genes) were docile in the beginning. As we get more and more into it their attitude may or may not change.

These bees were very gentle...not a single sting that wasn't my fault!

That is one of the best removal videos I have seen to date.  The queen find/catch was excellent.  Great work you two!!

I always feel like I've attended a master bee class when I watch your videos.  Great job! 
Thanks for the excellent lesson.   :)
