Have You Done A Honey Bee Removal?
« on: November 13, 2022, 07:34:38 am »
Have any of you members ever removed, participated in, or witnessed a Honey Bee Colony Removal?  This is not a survey but may be interesting to some of you....
I am placing this short video here which covers a lot of ground without going into detail. It's less than a minute clip.

I might do upwards of 20 removals a year, this does not include swarms.

First thing I noticed was that the floor had already been pulled up before the camera was turned on.
I would say this is mostly staged for the camera.

I work most removals with out any protection also, I always let the bees tell me what is needed. Keeping the little black German bees as a kid with your veil covered up and having to light the smoker inside of the car........well a couple of stings is really nothing anymore, just part of the territory. People always ask if I get stung, I ask back if they have ever been swimming, the reply is always "yes", then I ask if they got wet doing it. They seem to understand after that.
those hot bees will have you steppin and a fetchin like your heads on fire and your keister is a catchin!!!

Bees will be bees and do as they please!

That is awesome!

I have not watched her videos. Short videos are often taken from a longer video and posted for subject interest. It may have very well been staged? Either way, I am hoping it will spark a renewed interest in this section Bee Removal.

Removing bees is how I actually acquired my first hive. Such videos as this sparked my interest.

Personally, I would like to see this section rekindled with more sharing of removals. I would bet there are others such as yourself G3., that remove bees as well.

PS I had an experience with the Black German bee when I was a kid with my Uncle! Man ooh man!

Thanks for your post G3!

Not only have I done hundreds of removals, but I developed the most successful trapout method that is used anywhere today.

That is awesome! I have personally never done a trapout. Thanks for posting this. We never know when we might need or want to give it a go...
With hundreds of cutouts, you are most likely 'among' the 'most' experienced of cut-out folks here! I bet you have some 'good' cutout stories to tell! (hint lol)
Most likely, (since you are a long time member), you have told some good ones here already?

Even those of you which have little experience, I would love to hear of your cut-out 'adventures'. Notice I used the word "Adventures".

Taken from the topic:
"How to resize a photo to be able to post it on BeeMaster. "

I had posted the following on the topic >Mixing sugar syrup by the drum<
A couple members were discussing problems posting pictures. In case the other methods described here fail. I am adding the following option thanks to The15thMember. I hope this helps.

Quote
"I use Microsoft Paint on Windows 8, so you will need a PC for this to work, and it may be slightly different if you have another version of Windows.  Open your file explorer, go to your pictures, and right click on the picture you want to resize.  Roll over "Open with" and choose Microsoft Paint.  In Paint you'll see a button that says "Resize" and if you click that it opens a window where you can reduce the picture by a percentage.  For most of my pictures, I make them about 20% of their original size, but it will depend on your camera how much you need to reduce them.  When you are happy with the size of the image, click save and at the bottom it will tell you the new file size.  Just be sure the individual pictures are less that 200 kb and you'll be good to go."

Isn't it amazing how colonies seem to always seek out the location most densely populated with allergic people!  :wink: :cheesy:
