JP,
That is TOO COOL!  Thanks for posting!

Queen talk!
Hey Doris, did you see the size of that cockroach.
Mildred, that's nothing, wait till you see that big hairy thing crawling up here!
Betty, sure is hot in here, who cut a pollen fart?

Lmao! Good stuff right there Tefer!

The guy didn't want to spend $175.00 for me to open the fascia and remove the colony all after removing a tangle of large vines growing all over the roof and fascia where they were entering. The guy had tried spraying them many times & I'm betting that's why they made so many queens for such a young colony.

His wife on the other hand was a real sweetheart, who happened to have called me.

Pretty sure he eradicated them.

That was one of the single most awesome things I've ever heard.  I could hear three right off the bat, so I'm glad you confirmed the number.

Were they all co-existing in the same colony? 

A million thanks for posting this!!

When you hear the piping they aren't trying to coexist...they are on the hunt!

Cool video Bro!
"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."

War Cry!!!

Thanks JP that was great.  2 years ago I lost 2 queens and purchased new ones from the beekeeping store in Sacramento. They were in individual cages and the entire ride home they were piping at each other in the car. It is very funny to hear that.

Glad y'all liked the footage, too bad I couldn't have confirmed how many in there for sure. Would have saved every one I ran across & made nucs with them.
