I called D but no answer and about 4:30 they left for a stand of poplars across the road. I'd been asking for a bee suit and spare super with frames just in case this happened and I couldn't get anyone, but short of taking my dining room sheers for a veil, duct taping it to my shirt and a cardboard box to put the bees in, nothing I could do sad2.gif


What is that blue orb-looking thing at bottom of pic?

A semi-transparent alien obviously.

I'm pretty sure it's a lens flare. chuckle.gif

chuckle.gif I think I'll just ask D -again- to leave me a suit and empty hive. They did all gather on the middle post they're still there. I feel awful, they're waiting for someone to come put them in a safe clean hive. D spent yesterday at the mechanics and now is waiting for a tow truck, she drives a Dodge coffeetime.gif

More pics later beercheer.gif

Yesterday was very 13.gif interesting. D's truck broke down so she had it towed and put plates on an older one she has. Showed up at my place about 6. But her bee suits were in the towed truck rofl.gif so we put the main hive on the ground, she had a little broom to sweep and I had the bellows that make smoke, it calms them. All we had was gloves to protect from stings and we were close, like 2' while brushing the bees onto the hive erhmahgerd. Puff puff puff, she'd sweep and we'd run lmao.gif then go back after shaking off the bees that chased, and they did, then puff puff puff again, sweep and run rofl.gif I can't believe I did that. I do have pics, but the camera's in the shop, I'll upload them later.


I don't want another swarm today aaah2.gif
