Very nice video!!!  Some folks would pay good money to have that colony in their window....and other's would pay it to have it removed.  :-D

Enjoyed some of the other videos, too!  :th_thumbsupup:

colony is grave yard dead.

About 4 weeks later we had a huge wind storm and those hives were on my out yard I forgot it was there and checked the main yard they were find then week or so later I was just looking at the other property and saw that the storm had destroyed the only 2 hives I had on that property. Took a while for me to even figure out what happen. It was a late removal so they had not glued the hive together and I didnt think of that its the only hives I have ever lost to wind they were both late removals.

Sucks but that is the honest answer.

I will do removals up close to thanksgiving if I am asked. Reason Russell bees about 60 miles south says he makes up fall nukes up till thanksgiving. If he can make a nuke I think I can do a removal.

If that happened at my house, I think it would be my wife pushing for removal - and she'd have to be persistent.

Michael,
Caught a glimpse of your little giant in the video.  I curse mine every time I have to tote it, but aside from that....I love it!  It's a solid, versatile tool, I've had mine for many years now, I don't use it all that often, but for certain applications, it just can't be beat.  :)

That was one impressive removal.  Real bummer about it dying.  This is from the other individual accused along with you of having gap-ridden logic and bigoted conclusions.

Great pic, I think that would be fun to remove.  FYI, JP had something like too that can be seen on his website.

Yeah half the removals I do I feel like JP that day he let that exposed colony drop that 40 foot.

I start opening one up and its like instant hive collapse lol. But that is the reason its never worth doing a removal for free because a lot of the time you come back with a box of nasty lol.

I wish I could have given yall a better video but it was pitch black dark by the end of this removal but I bet there wasn't a 100 bees left that I didn't suck in the vac.
