With the weather this winter we really never had to slow down on removals. Peggy's injuries have been the only limiting factor.

I got a call from the Oviedo police dept on New Year's Day and as it was (in their estimation anyway) a matter of public safety I got right on it. I had both police and fire units there and police tape all over the place as this was probably the biggest event for them in a year grin The whole neighborhood came out and after it was said and done we had a great little party in the street.

I've got more removals "in the can" just haven't edited them yet.

Looked like most of those comb sections pulled right on out. Looked like a lot of fun, can't wait to be removing them again with you at Bud5. Great video buddy!

You get the queen yet?

How many times you been stung?

The number one questions we always seem to get.  grin

Hardwood,
Nice video...Did you end up having the queen or not?

I'm still amazed every time I see you and JP do the "hand full of bees move"....that's CRAZY COOL!

JP,
I guess each hobby has it's set of standard questions....I've done a fair amount of road cycling, which always draws one of the same three questions, if not all three....

1) How fast do you ride?
2) How far do you ride?
3) What do you do when you get a flat tire?

On the bee front, I've shown a number of your video's to a number of friends.  The standard question is "Why isn't he getting stung?'.  That's one I'm unable to answer and still trying to figure out myself.  Smiley

Thanks y'all. Yeah, queenie is just fine and laying up a storm right now. I must have either "pawed" her in there without noticing or she made her own way into the box...dunno, it was really dark by the time I got done and I was rushing a bit more than I like. She's smaller than most but she's a good producer.

I got stung a few times on this one (as with most removals) but as I recall they were all my fault. I don't think bees like to be pinched or leaned on grin

Moots, it's not that we don't get stung...we just don't whine about it much grin

Better than watching TV. Most of your removals always seem close to the ground Scott. Wish we were that lucky. All ours, require an extension ladder for some reason.

Nice job Scott, looked like a lot of crooked comb.

Let Peg know we are missing her, hope she is well enough to join you soon.

Thanks again everyone! Don, keep the good thoughts comin'...Peggy's healing up the best she can and the Doc is happy with her progress. We're keeping our fingers crossed that she'll be able to use crutches by the time Bud5 rolls around. I sure do miss her on these removals!
