Robbing video
« on: February 14, 2012, 06:26:52 PM »
It got cold (low 30's) last night so I thought it would be ok to leave a few boxes of honey on the back of the truck until morning...WRONG!

It warmed up so fast this morning that by the time I got to them around 8am the bees had already found their stolen stash.

For those who haven't witnessed robbing yet check out the way the bees are flying...it's a sure indicator of robbing.

"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."

Teach you not to steal honey from them bees again.   They just want what's theirs back.   Great video.

Looks like a thousand people trying to fit through one door.
I like how they fall off in clumps.
Great learning video for newbys.

Appreciate the video. I've never seen anything like it. I thought my bees have been robbed before. Now I rather doubt it.
