I just searched the guide and we do not carry this channel. Appreciate the heads up though.

Yea I forgot to say I have Diretv. it was pretty good. I would hate to have to do a bee removal there. They found the hives in a tree there were 7 in one tree. only problems were they were 150+ feet up in the tree.  :shock:. just a small problem. the really big one was the Bird called a honey vulcur. It finds hives and then waits for a person or animal to come along under the tree then it flys down and colides with the hive knocking in down on to the one below and the bees take off after that one then it flyes down and eats the larvey.

smart but mean bird. :-D

Know. but the biologist that was with them told about it will they looked at one that was on a low limb near the hives.  It came back on last night. the bird looked semelar to a red tail hawk.
