Thanks Jp,
I know it takes a long while to edit out these videos.  I now realize how much time you have put into all these that you have posted.  My hats off to you.  Another great video by the way.

This one actually had me in quite a conundrum! I failed to video our sign off and had to incorporate some footage from our swarm shake which we did happen to do on the same day, so I guess it was alright to do so.

I did happen to notice I included the word subtitle in the last frame, oops.  :-D

I always injoy your videos.  I only wish I was able to do a cut out from time to time.  You hardly get a swarm call up in my neck of the woods let alone a cut out.  I think varroa and  nosema have really done a number on feral colonies up here and to top it off I think shb is moving in.

JP, are you guys using 1 1/2 hose on your robo vac setup ?  I have found some shop vac 1 1/2 hose that has smooth inside wall to try out. It's a little pricey but comes in 12 ft. sections.

I actually sent JP a message asking the exact same thing a bit earlier. 2.5inch vac hose is hard to find around here and when you do its damm expensive. The local shops have 1.5inch ID pool host which I want to try using. Its not completely smooth inside but only has slight bumps where the ribs are.

Oh and JP has said in the past he and Schawee are using pool hose.

Sorry Shane, I've been busy. The pool hose we use is 1.5"

Thanks for the reply JP, pool hose $37 for 30 feet, and has a swivel fitting.
I'm enjoying the new music too!!

Just to let y'all know, Schawee had his camera and tripod in the room with us and where's that video?  :-D

I like the iphone, built in light for filming in the dark & I wind up with much less footage to edit. Once you set a camera up on a tripod you forget about it and wind up with 90 minutes of film to edit. Screw that! Life is now more wonderful without it!

Bet y'all can tell Schawee still going through vanilla shake withdrawals!  :-D
