Samsung Hydraulic Excavator & Honey Beees

Ok got call from a commercial hydraulic mechanic shop down the street from me (probably my bees). Said there were some bees underneath an excavator. Well when I got there, it was more like IN the excavator. The bees followed the hydraulic lines inside the bottom structure of the excavator and it’s a pretty big opening. They were not in a good mood either… probably since a major thunderstorm had just passed through. Wish I had my telephoto lense to get a better picture of the opening but you might be able to see the size of the opening. There are ALOT of bees.. the picture doesn’t do it justice. I had probably several hundred flying about me while I was underneath this rig.

Obviously this will be a trap-out if they agree to the time frame that it’s going to take.

Memorial Day Swarm

Received a call from a friend of mine (who needs bees) about a swarm. The word was that the swarm was in a small tree for several days and I didn’t think they would still be there yesterday morning… but they were still hanging out. Very small and my pictures were not really great this time. I was using my phone camera this time around and even managed to photograph my shadow. Duh!
