Another great video!

Thanks for sharing your videos for those of us who are still learning the art of bee removal.

I believe this hive would have been bombarded with the weather we have been having last night, today & apparently through Sunday. They likely would not have made it. Glad to have gotten them, it was a lot of fun. I had another sign off that I unfortunately failed to capture that had everyone in it. There were three adults & three or four kids.

Those darty little virgins are hard to find. Have fun with that one.  :-D
