Hey mister, what you doing under that trailer?

    You can always find good stuff underneath a house, or in this case, a trailer. I got a call about some bees that had moved under a trailer and was asked to come take a look at it. Since it was really close to my house, and on the way home, I went by. I was glad I did. Turned out it was a really nice swarm, but for me, the cool thing was that the queen was all black. Now, I want to see how these bees are going to make out over the summer and winter. We shall see. Thanks for watching. God's peace to all. Mr. Ed

    I was wondering if you've ever tried the honey from Avery Island where they grow the peppers for the tabasco hot sauce company? I was passing thru Louisiana from L.A. back home to Florida and went sight seeing there. I bought the honey in the gift shop, making sure to ask if it was infused or not. I never buy infused honey. They said it was not, when I tried it, I found that my mouth started to get warm, not unpleasant at all, just a subtle hint of heat. I've collected honey from all over the world and am always amazed at the different flavors. You do a great job on your videos. Keep up the great work. God bless your efforts, this is His gift to you.

      I never tasted the honey from Avery Island, I guess I will have to now. My brother goes there every year, and I am going to get him to get me some. Like you, I have tasted honey from all over the world and love the different tastes. It was the reason I decided to have a honey tasting station at our dedication of the abbeys honey house in December of last year. We had over 20 different kinds of honey and it was really a fun time. I have been collecting honey since then for this years taste station. I have over 30 different kinds already. Any time somebody goes somewhere I ask them to bring me back some honey. If you are around Louisiana, the New Orleans area,on December 7th, you are welcome to stop by the abbey and join in the fun. God's peace. Mr. Ed

    Your videos help me keep focus on beekeeping. I hurt my lower back a month ago, and now I can't go bee wrangling. Thanks God for the patience given to me and thanks Jeff for the videos. They really help me through.

    Keep up the excellent work.

    You say you use Honey Robber to run them out? There were bees way in the back that you could not reach. How exactly did you run them out? Did you reach back and spry HR as best you could to reach them? DId you add HR to a smoker? If you sprayed them, did you use it straight from the spray bottle, or did you dilute it? Thanks!

    • Jeff Horchoff
      Jeff Horchoff  2 months ago

      Honey Robber is my friend, that stuff really works when you want to chase bees from a spot where they are dug in. I use it straight from the manufacture, no diluting. I will be using it in a few weeks to spray on my fume boards to chase the bees from the honey supers. The stuff really stinks. Good to hear from you Dave. God's peace. Mr. Ed

    NEVER USE LEATHER GLOVES AND WORK HONEY BEES! "ALL THEY DO IS STING THE LEATHER GLOVES!" EVEN THE BEE GLOVES FROM THE BEE STORE!! "They need to discontinue that crap!!" I DON'T CARE WHAT ANY ONE SAIDS ITS A NO! NO! They can sting threw the black nitro rubber gloves i use, but it rare! That the problem i have any skin exposed above it they sting it. Need a 12 to 13 inch top rubber gloves and wear sleeves. and a veil. For short term work. You can make sleeves or buy em. i make em out of old jeans, pants legs.with rubber bands around the top and bottom of the sleeves. Just how fancy you want em. YOU WONT THE GLOVES TO FIT TIGHT BUT NOT TOO TIGHT.Just where there easy to get off and on. Buy the thick mill rubber gloves, that got a liner inside. Seem like they only bump the rubber gloves! They start bumping them, wash em off in plan water! Don't even dry them off go rite back working them!! i just order 12 pair for 14 dollars 13 inch top 18 mill rubber gloves they got grips too, There a heat and chemical rubber gloves by walmart on line "Ansell Chemical Resistant Gloves, Natural Rubber Latex, 7, 13" ALL YOU NEED" the large was too tight for me, i got em on They felt good on, My finger was to the end Just rite too, Just to tight and started to cut my blood off on my hands, I'LL TAKE HEAT GUN AND STRETCH EM OUT. so i went XXL! So buy 1 size bigger than what you wear.

    Another good score. Is swarm season about over there or do you get them all summer long ? Cant wait to see all your honey harvest.

    • Jeff Horchoff
      Jeff Horchoff  2 months ago

      Hey Jeff! Yep, this was another nice one, not as big as some of the earlier ones, but the queen is a beaut. She is all black, she's the old queen, and I can hardly wait to see what kind of bees she makes. Swarm season is over, and so are cut outs, unless I get them from the inside of the house, way to hot and way to many robber bees. I will start collecting honey supers on the 29th of this month and then process the honey on the first of July. Stay tuned for the videos. God's peace brother. Mr. Ed


  • Shaun Barker

    Hey Jeff,nice video as always.
    Friday pictures hmmm kinda went wrong as did Sunday.
    The swarm in the now taken down pink hive was the story of those days.
    I'm not saying don't buy cheap gear, but the queen marker cage was and it broke while we were trying to mark the queen on Friday.
    She flew off!.
    The plunger end came off of the stick and that was that.
    After countless amounts of searching she was gone.
    Just to clarify the theory, we checked yesterday (Sunday 18 th June).
    The hive was almost empty.
    The hive has been taken down and a 6 frame nuc put in its place with a split done Sunday.
    We were able to mark one queen in a split,bang smack in the middle of her thorax,done by yours truly.
    Which was cool.
    She's a darkish brown queen real real pretty.
    Yellow for each queen from now on,regardless of year as the color stands out perfect.
    We seem to have a real hard time with queens here, not sure why.
    By the way a new queen clip and a one handed queen catcher will here in a few days,going to make marking easier.
    Peace Jeff and God bless

    Thank you for the videos. This is always neat to see! I see you reuse comb at times. This may be a silly question, but how many times can bees reuse it?

    • Jeff Horchoff
      Jeff Horchoff  2 months ago

      I don't really know the answer for that, but I have heard 5 years is about all. But, I would still use that comb for my swarm traps because it has the smell that bees like. Thanks for watching. God's peace. Mr. Ed


  • Rosie Miner

    Mr. Ed- Another great video. Thanks for posting. Do you feel the bees are more easily agitated in the summer or when it's cooler out?

    • Jeff Horchoff
      Jeff Horchoff  2 months ago

      The summer is worse because the bees are still active. In the winter, the bees are somewhat dormant here in Louisiana, but they are less agressive when it's cold. God's peace Rosie. Mr. Ed

    ok now how did you run them out of there at the end?

    • Jeff Horchoff
      Jeff Horchoff  2 months ago

      I use a product called Honey Robber. It has a smell that bees can not stand and they run from it as fast as they can. I use it when I rob my bees. I spray it on a fume board and place that over the hive. All the bees in the honey super leave it, and now I have a box full of honey with no bees in it. The stuff is GREAT! Thanks for watching. God's peace. Mr. Ed

    If you need to coax some bees out next time, just have the rooster come out with one of his boxes and set it right next to yours. Given the option, I'm sure they'll march straight into yours! ;)
    Another good catch Jeff. Thanks for all the work you do in putting these videos together. All that editing is VERY time consuming and I appreciate the work you put into it for our enjoyment and God's glory!

    • Jeff Horchoff
      Jeff Horchoff  2 months ago

      I don't think one of his boxes would even hold together if I lifted it. If the his bees would not wax everything together, they would be homeless. Thanks for your kind words Paul, but I really enjoy doing all the aspects of bee keeping.....even the video part. God's peace brother. Mr. Ed

    im a 65 year old great grandmother. Ive been disabled since a work injury in 1990 but had horses and always enjoyed the outdoors. I never knew how relatively simple bee keeping can be until you tube. I really enjoy your channel. Thank you for sharing your bee keeping with us. I read a comment below about a bee license. Is a license required to keep bees? Thanks from Linda in Virginia

    • Jeff Horchoff
      Jeff Horchoff  2 months ago

      Congratulations on your great grandmother status, and I'm sorry to learn of your disability. I can only imagine your struggles considering how active your life was. Still, I'm happy for you that you have discovered Youtube, especially my channel, and are still engaged in the outdoors through Youtube. As far as a license, I could not say. It is not required here in Louisiana. I guess you need to check into that in Virginia. I suspect it is not necessary unless you would be a commercial bee keeper, but I do not know for sure. Thank you for watching my channel, and I hope you continue to do so. God's peace Linda. Mr. Ed

    I always wonder what will happen with the bees still flying around when you leave? Do they follow the hivebox you've put the queen in?

    • Jeff Horchoff
      Jeff Horchoff  2 months ago

      When I do a removal like this, and I don't use the bee vac, I leave the box for several days at the location so the bees can orient on it. Then, when its still dark. around 5:00 am, I close the entrance up and remove the whole hive. This way ALL the bees are in the box and none are left behind. It does not work that way when I use the bee vac. Almost all of the field bees are left behind, and these bees will either migrate to a new hive or perish. The vac is very quick, but you do not get all the bees. God's peace brother. Mr. Ed
