I could only pick out about 2 words that they were saying!  But the bees were very interesting.  You would have to have quite a few little boxes of bees to get much honey.

You got 2 more words than I did.   And it would take more than a few of those hives to get much honey.

It doesn't seem like they were totally preoccupied with the possibility of killing some.  That kind of beekeeping sure looks like it would be hard on bees.  My bees produced that very same quantity of honey this year.  Thanks I really enjoyed watching.

Very interesting! Their nests look very similar to bumbles. That honey has to be quite expensive!

I have been wondering, does smaller bees mean smaller stingers?

The way they store their honey in pots reminds me of stingless bees. Too kewl.
