Seeing as how we are supposed to have some nasty weather coming in tomorrow evening and seeing as how I haven't finished the roof on my motorhome yet. I needed to cover up a living room ceiling exhaust fan that I haven't got the cover on yet. A 5 gal bucket was too small, but a med. hive body with a heavy telescoping cover fit perfect. Getting back and looking at it, it's starting to grow on me. If I screw the cover down and put vents in the sides of the box............

HMMM. I do have reservations at a gulf coast campground in 2 weeks that I know had bees somewhere around it last year. I know, I'm the only one that leaves some honey on the picnic tables to see if there are bees around. Now if I can keep my wife from turning the fan on...........

If he reverses the exhaust fan, he could suck them right in! :lol:

Charles is that your place and bees?

What a great view you have.

Tell us more about that bee truck.

Nope, just being sarcastic :lol: No bees around here anymore. Everything went away when we put the house up for sale. That's one of the reasons we were so excited to sell it, planning on a TBH in the back yard but we need to get moved into the new house and get a feel for the neighbors. If it doesn't work out we'll be really close to the mountains so I'll have to go out and make a new friend :)

Well, the supers gone and the cover in place :cry: .
Last year at this campground, I left some honey in a jar lid on the picnic table and had half a dozen bees in it a day later. Why can't one go on vacation and forget about it?

If I am on a job site for a while I like to try and attract a few and mark them with a pint marker to see if they will come back the next day. I think it is pretty neat.
