Combined a cut out colony, a swarm that lost its queen and a queen right swarm.

JP, your videos are really getting to be quite a production. We really enjoy them! I know that it takes a lot of time to produce them. Thank you for them. Larry

WOW! :shock:

I thought for a moment that I was back in the 70's at a Who concert trippin on some funny sugar cubes. ;)

Great effects and music choice.  All us old foggies got it but I don't know about the new kids though.

That was great fun JP. Loved the special effects, but mostly love the way you treat the bees. Always with love and respect.

Thanks for sharing

I'm TOTALLY reliving a Pink Floyd concert...WHOA!

Scott
"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."

Can you imagine the exposure beekeeping would get if some wise TV mogul gave JP his own reality show? It would come complete with special recurring guests and interesting walk ons each week. It could show how gentle and important the bees are when treated properly, and how much of a community beekeeping is. The laughs! The drama! Who knew bees prefer lime snow cones? Definitely one of the shows you would find on my DVR.
Thanks JP

Hi Silent Hunter

Have you seen any other of JP's videos? They are a wonderful learning tool. They gave me and other beekeepers around here the confidence to do cut outs and catch swarms. Plus they are so much fun to watch.

Enjoy

Annette
