Very cool couple called me out for a nice swarm that had settled a few days or so prior inside of an old plastic drum. Lots of fun was had by all!

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."

There she is!! Still don't understand how you do it. My friend Joanne says you must have some sort of bee esp or something to be able to find the queens so easily. We have trouble finding them inside the hives.

Thanks JP.

Wait to y'all see the video I'm uploading right now titled "Honey Bee Swarm Fills The Sky". Right after I shook the bees on this video (the one seen in this post) I went to the town of Lakeview for yet another awesome swarm shake!

That swarm was on a support post on an Allstate building. The swarm tries to leave the set up and lands on a tall shrub but has to come back as their queen is caged.

I was able to capture some really cool footage of the entire episode.

I have a few more that I have yet to work on including one really cool one of two swarms showing up in each end of a couch on a rear patio.

I'm having a blast folks, knee deep in bees and good people all around me.

What more could anyone ask for?
