Kewl!  :-D Love that citrus flavor. Got some honey from a friend in California that was citrus and the honey was almost clear but good!

The fear of the Lord is clean,enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold, yea ,than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

Cool video Bro...I enjoyed it for sure! It was awesome watching those swarm bees (1st one) fan in slo-mo. Momma swarm at the end!

I've been passing calls to my buddy this week. Just been too busy with the bees to take any of them. I'll be jumping back in soon though!

"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."

Sorry it was so long folks but tried to make it entertaining. Thanks for the feedback! Making a video now, hope I have enough to put it together, all filmed with my iphone. I guarantee it will be much shorter in duration than this one.

I'm very stoked about the new yard. I love any honey with even a hint of citrus. I'm hoping to get some good stuff. The crabbing should be good soon enough. Bailey went this past Saturday & caught 29 boilers and a handful of busters he'll cultivate for soft-shells.

I'm jealous. I want more hives.  :-P I'm waiting for a swarm from a old oaktree on the river. I setup two traps 100 and 150 feet away with old frames and lemongrass. Now the waiting game begins. the suspense is killing me.

Nice job JP. I appreciate being able to see what you do on bee removals.

Cool about how all that comb at the Fire Training center just came right up with the floor. I've got one coming up where the bees are under a bathroom floor around a drain pipe, don't think I'll be so lucky. Thanks for the video.
