Removed these yesterday. It was very windy & the bees were not overly aggressive but enough so that I had to suit up. Took about fifteen stings or so & they were the burning type. They finally settled down some later on after I shook them & this morning they were much nicer. All & all it was a pretty text book removal. Hope you enjoy it!

JP, do you wait till late in the evening to close them up for the ride home?
Was just wondering what happens to the stragglers ?

99.9% of the time I leave the site after dark. On the rare occasion I leave before dark its by some miracle they are all in the box before then.

Now that must make for a long day. I sometimes leave them overnight and have to get up before dawn to load them up. I always enjoy all your videos.

We survive together, or not at all!

You're having entirely too much fun, and I'm jealous.  I'm looking forward to lots of fun this year.  I have a couple of new beeks to mentor this year, one of whom wants experience in removals, which should be fun.  He's been watching some of your videos and can't wait to get started.  I'm sure we'll even get to bickering like you and Schawee.....

Tefer it does make for long days. Particularly so in the summer when the days are much longer!

Len, I always enjoy some good bickering! Looking forward to yours!
