Did you vac before we got to see it? Didn't look like there were many bees.

Good one 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."

JP do you ever get stung? I've seen a bunch of your videos and you never have even a veil on. I can understand that catching swarms, but cutouts?

Scott, I did vacuum about a half a box of bees. I don't recall this colony having a ton of bees as they were still in build up mode from what little winter we had. Of course they may have swarmed as well and reduced numbers up to this point.

For you other guys & gals I sometimes go ridiculously slow with the bees, keeping my movements on the slow side for the most part depending on how the bees are reacting to what I do.

i get a few stings here and there but try to be observant to how they are responding & use my smoker accordingly to keep them at bay.

I got a new belt, finally! :)

JP, we have been missing your great video's, bout time you you get us caught up!
I'm diggin my new bee vac this season. I just have to remember to have the top with me when I dash out on a call. I really need to buy a backup so I can have one for each vehicle. Thanks for taking the time to instruct us on the proper way to do a cutout. :th_thumbsupup:
