FREE BEES - Kansas, Council Grove and Herrington
« on: June 20, 2013, 10:46:39 PM »
Hi everyone. I am unable to do couple of removals at this time due to my medical condition and I had reserved 2 removals before I knew I would not be able to do it. I will be calling them to cancel but I would rather tell them that I found someone else to do the job. If you are interested give me a buzz and I will square you away.

It is really sad. Closest beeks are several miles away. Just to give you an idea, last year I was called to remove bees from an army training ranch 82 miles away. They told me that I was the only one they found.

I'm thinking it is time for you to have a boy and teach him the ways of the beekeeping ninja life, for when you are down, or to old to be climbing through attics capturing rogue hives. Everyone knows that is what kids are really for, to do all the gopher work, while we save for them going to school or until they've earned the right to have a beer with us.

or just take on a hungry beekeeper and teach him/her.  there must be one or two around?
.....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.....

Well, what do you know? Yesterday, I went to my favorite butcher to buy some meats for the weekend and he tells me how heart broken is his neighbor because he did not receive his order of bees. Got the phone number, made a call and it looks like I found home for at least one of the colonies. He may take both, we will see.
