  1. It's too bad the comb was ruined by the hive beetles. How do you make sure that they don't follow them into the new hive, besides not using the infested comb? It's crazy to think that the hive beetles only came to North America in the late 90's, and before that they had never been a problem here. It's too bad that they made their way here. It's also too bad that they waited so long to call you after the tree fell. It was a good video 👍

  2. Yappy Eye… JP you the Moses of the honey wannabees.. sincerely now, There ain't no one better…………

    But I'm confused…..you LOVE 'your girls' (the working force of the ²queen²) but you can shoot a wild pig, a beautiful young female pig, and laugh and drag her through the muck – with no respect to her pain and integrity to and with life – after she's been doing nothing other than "going over there"…. I question your amazing care and uttermost gentile-ness… of your 'girls' and what that possibly could mean in respect to ……well … can't do much more now………

  3. This is old now but I must say it is beautiful how the people in the end are all intensely interested and they all shut up and listen when you speak to the camera. Very nice. Love your interaction with people and the respect they show you.

  4. You need to learn how to sharpen your chain, when it curves to one side that means the saw is not equally sharped. LOL

  5. great video, a lot of work followed by a new hive, everybody wins! (like many of your videos!) possibly you’ve done this, but could you make a short video showing the hive relocated with others, building the honey and then how you extract the honey for sale?

  6. aye mate you need to learn chain saw sharpening skills because the way your blade is cutting.

  7. I thought two queens in the same pill bottle would fight, or does he mean they're separated somehow? When he says it's covered in pheromone, does he mean from the queens or something he put on it?

  8. I have to say you might need a new chain for your saw. Cutting crooked. Also big trees take big saws

  9. Hey JP! I'm a new bee keeper in Ocean Springs, MS. I been watching you and Yappi and the dirt rooster. And mr. Ed. I would like to know when the next bee keeper association meeting takes place. Send me swarm calls in my area if ya could pls sir. My logo is Odell behind the fence bee keeper.

  10. Man this brings back memory's of me an Mis Liz. (The Bee Lady) in Baton Rouge la doing a cut out years ago. First time messing with bees. I've always had a interest in bees sense, and now I've just got my first hive that I want to start.

  11. That was great you saved the bees, I always wonder if a hive could die after something like that. Was not too long ago we where wondering what was going on with them. Hive failure was happening all around us, and the fear of losing honey bees all together. Reports from the USDA on the decreasing number of hives do to mites and something called Colony Collapse Disorder. I was a farmer's daughter way back in Missouri, helped run my father's farm out near Middleton. I had notice a drop in the bees , the flower bed did not seem to attract as many bees as I remembered when I was a kid. I had notice a lot of farmers saying it was harder to get bee farmers to get hives to their crops. I worked hard with the Conservation Department for other reasons for the wild quail that I was trying very hard to bring back their numbers. Guess my Dad and I where Lucky , we had a few wild hives, living in the woods near the fields, Had Indian Creek running threw it, with lots of wild flowers too. I miss those days, I loved that farm, kept me working all day, great place to raise kids, and have a couple of dogs. But enough of that back to JP the Beeman, the super hero of the bee world.

  12. J P if you would sharpen that blade on your chain say it would not run off to the rt, it would saw streight, I still liked the video

  13. I wish you can see my father climbing on the mountains walls checking and harvesting wild pure natural honey I love what my father and you guys do
    He always send me harvested honey from Guadalajara mx
    I live I. Phoenix
