The best bee removal ever.

The best bee removal ever.

06/24/2021

We did a bee removal tonight with the sweetest bees I have ever been around. I have always fully dressed out for a bee removal because with years of experience they normally come out like killer bees when you tear the wood/Sheetrock off the front of their hive in the wall. These bees never from beginning to end got aggressive. For my 1st time EVER (out of the 100’s of bee removals we have done) been able to wear shorts and be barefoot doing a bee removal.
These are my kind of bees!!! I hope these stay with us and progress in an amazing way.
Pictures to follow in next post.

Well today was my day to catch a swarm on my arm. David was getting a hive ready while I stood at the swarm and watched for the queen. I caught and caged her and by the time David got to me with the hive I almost had them all on my arm.
They were heavy and my arm got tired, but it was fun. I’ve done this before with smaller swarms.
So here’s to another experience in beekeeping in the books.
I got one sting on the wrist after I put the bees in the box.
As you can tell David is not as good as me at videoing. Lol

Our new beekeeper in training, Chase Ragan. He is learning so much and takes everything in that we show and tell him and he is my 2nd cousin so I’m loving getting to spend time with him. Keep up the good work Chase, you will be a beekeeper yourself in a few weeks. ❤️🐝

David and I caught a swarm today. It went back to the limb. I caught and caged the queen the second go round, then David held the cage in his hand and the swarm come to his hand. He got one sting and that was after he put them in the hive.
This is a 3 part video but worth the watch.

04/26/2021

I got a swarm call of a swarm on the ground. I did my magic, caught the queens,,
And the bees go marching in.

It’s been very busy the last couple months around here at LookoutMtnHoneyBees. Building equipment, 8 week bee class, 75 people here for our field day. Package bee and queen pickup the last 2 weekends. We have supplied package bees to customers in South Alabama (as far a Bay Minette), Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, and 175 pkgs went to Indiana, our bee supply store was very busy also. God has truly blessed us and all of our customers have made this happen.
Yesterday I had the privilege to help out a beautiful 5 year old to become a beekeeper. Her name is Brealynn and I’ve never saw a child so excited over a bee suit, bee gloves and bees. She was very eager to learn about bees. Yes she was a precious little girl that was just in love with the bees. Brealynn will be helping her grandparents take care of the bees.
When they left here she was in her car seat with her bee suit, gloves and she had to hold a package of bees in her lap. I think she will be a great beekeeper when she grows up. Children getting involved in beekeeping really touches my heart,
And this little one really did.
Keep up the good work Brealynn and learn all you can about the honeybees. ❤️🐝❤️🐝❤️🐝

Special thanks to both Lookout Mountain Honey Bees for 2 excellent honeybee packages and to Kamon Reynolds for showing us how to install them. Kamon from Tennessee's Bees has an awesome YouTube channel that we highly recommend to any beekeepers that want to learn how to keep bees.

Below is a video in Kamon's Package v. Nuc Challenge series. The first video walks you through a simple way to install a package of honeybees. Highly recommend this method.

When do we place orders for Nuc's?
When will you start taking order for the 2020 bees?
Spent the morning with Mrs. Lynne and Mr. David. It was amazing and a great experience. Thanks for letting us help with the swarms today. Did that other swarm ever go into the box?

A huge THANK YOU to Lookout Mountain Honey Bees for the generous donation of equipment to Steethearts in Haiti. We were not able to have class in the apiary because of travel difficulties due to the unrest, however we had a great lesson in Cap Haitian. These futures bee keepers are planning on raising health bees, bottling delicious Haitian honey and making products from the beeswax. The boys will design the labels and packaging and sell their products to local Haitians as well as people visiting Haiti. The donation of suits, hats, gloves and books by Lookout Mountain Bees is a fantastic start! Thank you David and Lynne! For more information about the amazing and hopeful work Streethearts is doing in Cap Haitian visit Streetheartshaiti.org
