Richard's bees
« on: May 28, 2012, 09:15:49 PM »
What started out as a typical block wall removal turned into anything but typical! Evidently, as I started tearing into the wall the queen and most of the bees moved off across the block work to remote areas in the wall. We finally got them out the next day as a swarm.

"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."

Awesome video guys! Reminds me of the one Schawee & I did in the diesel engine but that swarm was much more accessible! Expert bee removal at its finest!

I really learn a lot from your videos, Scott, because you show us how you access the bees, and you tell us what you're thinking as you do it. I find that VERY helpful. Thanks.
