BEEKEEPING LEARNING CENTER > HONEYBEE REMOVAL

Tag-along on cutout in SE TX?

<< < (2/2)

AmEricAs:
Thank you Jim.

I'm game to do as much as I can but thought it might be a case of a helper getting in the way (what I call the degrees of freedom factor). So, I am resigned to just watching if that is what is required.

I just got off the phone with a representative of our local beekeepers association. I called to asked about their meetings, and as the discussion progressed he mentioned having two removals scheduled between now and the end of the week. Sounds as if I'm welcome to come along and help. I plan to take him up on it.

BTW - remember degrees of freedom in statistics is n-1. When I was in graduate school we students sometimes had projects requiring several of us to work together as a team. We had one older professor who loved to join in. We called him the degrees of freedom factor because if he joined it was as if we had one less than if he hadn't joined. Great guy though. :happy:

I think it's fabulous to have help.  But don't expect to just stand out of harm's way, gawking in amazement. 

You will have to load the truck with ladders, hives, beevacs, many construction tools, protective masking gear, and cleaning gear.   

You will need to unload all that, carry it a distance from the parking spot, perhaps inside, or even upstairs to attic access where people are cringing about their walls being dented.

You will have to stand in sawdust, drywall dust, insulation dust, pick up debris and probably take a sting or two - or six.  Oh, and did I say, more carrying of various objects?

Count on being hot and sweaty and working hard for several or many hours.  However, it is exhilarating, and will teach you much about bees.
