We removed these a couple of days ago....Man were they ever pissy!

Unfortunately, Peggy thought the camera was recording during the whole mid section but wasn't. Missed a lot of footage including finding the queen on the third to last comb. A beautiful large queen with a great pattern but a really poor attitude. She's now taking a nice cool bath in alcohol Smiley

It's cool to see y'all working together like you do.  Great job.  Hope you those bees cooled down some.

nice video of the process. Made me happy that I was merely viewing it, not actually standing there.  Smiley

Good video, strong hive, mean bees.    That queen bath never hurts.

Didn't know you two even owned bee suits  lau

Glad I haven't run into bees like that. Will you let them requeen themselves?

Thanks for the video, good job.

We survive together, or not at all!

Look on the bright side, chances are good that your next bees will be calmer than those were. I had two jobs like that two years ago, and I'm kind of glad they didn't make the winter.

I ended up taking the bees that we vacuumed (I'd say maybe 10lbs or so??) to a very remote bee yard that we have and shaking them out to boost the population of the hives we have there (they're in citrus and the flow just started). I had just split that yard a few weeks ago and wasn't worried too much about them wanting to swarm so wasn't too worried about introducing the mean drones to the area. My nearest mating yard is about 30 mi away.
