Good video!!

When you put all three queen in to the bottom of the cardboard box did the prefer one over the other?
(one mated and two virgins  or  all three virgins?)

How come the last part of the video was upside down :? made my head hurt :-D

I notice JP quite calling you eagle eyes, you have moved on to finding all of the queens not just one, just saying!! :-D :-D

those hot bees will have you steppin and a fetchin like your heads on fire and your @ss is a catchin!!!

Bees will be bees and do as they please!

Did you just drop the fat girl queen in that swarm or what did you do with the other 2 girls?   Nucs?

Dang Schawee, I thought New Orleans had a lot of queens! You must have 'em at every bus stop!  :-D

G, you can bet he had his special queen catching glasses on. He can't see $%#* without 'em!  :-D
