Jack called, said he had me some bees. Jack has kept bees for over 60 years. Suspicion crept in quickly. Then I found out why he was giving them away. Yes, Perry, I do have a chainsaw when needed. :D

I like the "automatic wedge" way better than the manual one (unless somebody else wants to run it :lol: ).

Jack looks right at home sitting there looking at the bees!!

Did you find the queen?

That's not me folks, i quit wearing overalls while working bees years ago. You would be surprised how fast you can run out of a pair of them when bees come in the sides of them and crawl down your legs :shock: The other Jack :lol:

I am astounded that the vibration of the saw going through the tree wouldn't have those bees lighting you up! (again, no suit)
When I first read the title of this thread, I thought it meant the bees chased you away FAST, and I thought, this I gotta see, what does it take to make Iddee RUN :shock: :mrgreen:

Brooks is the young Jack in this case. The Jack watching the cutout is 86 years old. :D

No, the tree cutter that dropped the tree hasn't been seen since the tree hit the ground.
Iddee was left to clean up the mess.

Again, I just told the ladies I was giving them a new, nicer home, so they walked right in. :p :Dancing:

Brought the hive home tonight. Took them three days to clean the honey out of the tree.

Checked the hive today. First frame I pulled, nice large queen and many eggs. Put it back and closed it up. That's all I needed to see. :thumbsup: :D
