Did this one two days ago. Repaired the ceiling today.

We made a good friend on this one. The owner (Cindy) is a great lady and a lot of fun...that's what it's all about right?

Great job guys! I know that one was a lot of work, between setting up and repairs. Pretty queen too.

Correctamundo!  Nice work, nice video. 

I thought I must be doing something wrong because I occasionally take  a sting or two when I inspect my hives.  So I started wearing more than my watch and underwear.  Now I see you do too!  (My wife is always yelling at me to put something on.)

Have fun!

Good job and nice video.  Cindi is a tough girl. Bare legs and most time bare arms and shoulders. I am impressed.


Thanks,

Great video.  My shoulders ached just looking at all that overhead work.  I assume you used no smoke because you were inside the house?

Great removal Scott and Peg and a very hard one. Must be pretty darn hot down there. It was great you were able to see the queen with that hood on.

Thanks for sharing

What the heck, Scott?! Don't you carry a long-sleeved shirt in the car with you?

I loved watching this video. I love seeing you share the honey with the homeowner. I just enjoyed every part of it. To my mind, that was a big, messy job, and you two simply take it a step at a time without getting too grumpy or short tempered with one another. I can learn a lot from that. I tend to get snippy when I'm tired (or when I've been stung a zillion times and have to pick stingers from up and down my arms).

One question: Do you find that the bees you vacuum from the comb containing honey die? I usually find a big gloppy pile of dead bees in the box...and I don't know how to filter them from the live bees. So, when I dump the vacuumed bees into a hive box, a big glob of dead bees just plops there on top of the frames. I hate that. If you've got some advice, I'm all ears.

Thanks, bud. Though I don't have control over the suction, I can certainly turn it off every now and then.

(And I LOVE being called "miss liz.")

Okay. I don't know why that makes me happy, but it does, JP. Smiley

I'm using the one from Walter Kelley https://kelleybees.com/Products/Detail/?id=3336333333323333&grouped=1.

Which do you suggest?

If it is to much vacuum, you could drill a hole on the top about the inside diameter of your hose and make a plate to either pivot or slide over the opening to adjust the amount of air that the hose draws, like Robo uses on his design. Make sure when you use a bee vac that you try to avoid  the combs of honey that will make it sticky inside and mat a bunch of bees together.

I did another simple cut out yesterday, and once again I had to dump a mound of soggy and dead bees into their new hive box.

Perhaps my usage has outgrown the limitations of my current bee vac, so, after watching Robo's wonderfully informative videos (http://robo.bushkillfarms.com/bushkill-bee-vac-how-to-use-for-swarms-cut-outs/), I've ordered the Bushkill bee vac.

Robo's system makes sense to me (of course, I know already know how that ratchet strap will give me fits. One day I plan to master it).

Well Miss Liz, you will be happy with the vac of robs design. It works well and puts a lot less stress on the bees. You can transport them when you are done and let the bees in the hive boxes you vacuumed into as their home and just remove the bottom board to put a permanent one on after the bees have settled at their new home.
