Bees stick.jpg
Yeah a bit sloppy but I'm working on it. Mainthing is they are still buzzing after 6 days. Still feeding them sugar water.

Started out on April 30th with nothing and with a few bucks invested for a veil and smoker and GETTING lots of GREAT advice from peeps on this site it looks like I may have something going .
Not even ANY stings for us. VERY mellow bees. Didn't really need the veil. I did use some sugar water on the swarm before I cut the branches.
I still have the wild hive to take that's in the garage wall. One step at a time tho as there's not a lot of activity and it looks like they may have swarmed.

Bee vac ready for the next swarm/cutout? Even fired up my generator!!!!

Mahalo/Thanks for ALL the help. I will no doubt be hitting you guys up for more. Please hang in there with me as I'm 73 and my brain's "skipping beats" now and then. Sometimes it SUCKS getting old. You will hear me scream all the way to the mainland when I first see the Queen!!! That will "make my month [or year]".
Aloha Dakine guy

Looking good and as you say , nothing to lose.......

we all are learning..... the bees will do as bee will do, we must just watch over them..... as a very wise Beekeeper told me when I started.
