bees loose in car
« on: April 19, 2013, 05:35:28 PM »
Now I know I can't be the first one... got a swarm call this morning. Easy deal- 5' off the ground in a tree, cut three branches and they're loaded in a deep, with a top on the bottom. Not sure if they had a queen in the big ball... Only the cover wasn't a tight fit so about 50+ bees are on the back window of my Caravan. Do I just open the back door and not worry about the stragglers, or let them sit tight till dark and hope they go back in the box?

when they die, vacuum them out.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

open the car up and let them loose. Then vacuum any that stayed and died.

Next time, leave that hive body and top at home. You would have done better with a cardboard box
and some duct tape.

I keep a couple of bees flying around my truck just for company on long trips. :-D

"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."
