This one was done on Tuesday July 3, 2012. The same day Emil and I removed the bumble bee colony from underneath the house trailer in Destrehan, Louisiana. This hive had quite a bit of attitude! It was determined that the queen was vacumed. Hope you enjoy the video but the removal was rough!

I knew they had to be a little warm to see you suited up. I also noted that you have a hydration system, how do you like it? I've thought about getting one myself, either that or air conditioning. LOL As much as I love cutouts this heat sucks!

Great job JP !

Everybody has to "suit up" once in awhile.

June and I "suit up" all of the time.

Good video.   Sorry to see you could not hypnotize those bees like you normally do.   I was worried that the house was going to fall in as you were tearing it apart.

David, I like it. Really is a life saver on these hot days we've been having. I really have Emil to thank as he insisted I get one. Mine is from Academy Outdoors. It holds 100oz. Cost was $89.00 but I had a $50.00 gift card.

Emil ordered an insulated tube for his. His also has a wire in the tube that keeps it positioned exactly where you need it if its under your veil.

I fill mine with chunks of block ice, then add water. 100oz goes quite a long way.

Yeah folks these were a little bit too 'hot."

Dang I didn't even know you had gloves...Wink  They must have been quite hot.  Did you find that queen for requeening?  How hot were they as you searched for her?

On that day, I performed this removal and I had Emil do another one in the same area. We were both in Reserve, Louisiana that day and met up after each of our removals. His hive was nice BTW. grin

We then went to his bee yard which we share and set the hive up. We then went on and did the bumble bee removal. We didn't finish until after midnight. I believe I got home at 1 AM the next morning.

Emil informed me that he did not see the queen the following day but after a few days or so (which I just now found out last night) the colony absconded from the set up. They pretty much will do that only if they have a queen.

So, that's the skinny of it.
