Edgard Bees Removed & I Make A New Friend
« on: April 04, 2012, 10:07:15 AM »
Removed a colony for this really nice couple down in Edgard, Louisiana. He is interested in keeping bees! We set up two colonies on his property for now but will be adding quite a few more. This was a win/win for me folks.

Another great video.

Do you have restrictions on how many hives you can keep on a property? Looks like a great place there to keep some hives.

In most rural areas down here there is no limit but you still need to use your head.

Lots of good eats there! Did you find any vanilla shake trees? If so, you can bet Schawee will move his hives there!! :-D

Yeah, it just goes back another three miles.  :-D That is not land its a national park!  :-D

Schawee will find any reason to give me a hard time. Will kick me when I'm down & laugh about it! Of course I do the same. What are good friends for anyway?  :-D

This was a good one JP and great that you can help that man start beekeeping. Will you be able to keep any of your bees on his property?

I find it so unbelievable that the queen landed on your shoulder, as if she understood that it was the right thing to do.

Loved that part very much. Nice yellow comb also.

Thanks for sharing
Annette

Annette, we are gonna take baby steps with a small handful of hives but I'm hopeful we'll wind up with a good many on his property.

Man Schawee, you know the truth about your trips to the buffet. They always keep count. At least four plates and that's before you hit the dessert, which we all know you hit hard!  :-D

You do recall our Fed Ex removal last season right? Folks he just had to leave the site and go find a buffet at 9pm at night. We were sittin' there stuffed in that cold AC wishing we didn't have to go back & finish the job! That was rough!

I don't know about buffets but he single handedly closed down Burger Delight in Gonzales. They couldn't keep up with his giant vanilla shake demands. No one really can. His wife thought about renting him a space in the back of Baskin Robbins but they too said there was no way they could supply his addiction!  :-D Something about cows can only supply so much milk but not that much milk!  :-D
