    Thanks JP.

    I really enjoy your videos. :thumbsup:

    Especially the part where that chunk of comb dropped down and smacked you on the shoulder.

    JP, I'm addicted to your videos. I'm new at this and I have really learned alot from your manner and smooth, gentle movements on the cut outs and swarms.

    Hope you and Schawee have good season.

    I know you didn't do this and not get stung, just how many times I am wonder. You did a great job of getting them and would love to see more.

    Who was catching those combs as you dropped them?
    What are your plans for the caught swarms?

    The only comb dropped was the one that hit my shoulder. :mrgreen: The rest I placed atop the steel beam as I removed them, bringing them down in stages. I may have secured some of the comb in frames but if memory serves me, most were too new & soft to secure. Either way they were boxed and treated as swarms. Both were placed in deep nucs & added to my main bee yard in Nine Mile Point, Louisiana.

    JP, amazing stuff as always! :thumbsup: :mrgreen:
    One of these days I expect to see you set a box down next to a swarm and talk to the bees like you did to that bear:
    "Awright now bees, ya'll get in theya" and be darned if they wouldn't do what ya tell 'em! :mrgreen:
