    Do people think you are supposed to rehearse these live videos a few times before actually doing them so you don't have to COMMUNICATE with each other while filming? Fine job both of you and especially so for Mrs Stony Ridge's debut on the camera.

    Sorry but if people who are delivering to you are parking on his property then he has every right to complain? Especially if it is big trucks leaving huge wheel tracks? You even said if it was people delivering to him parking on your property you would not like it so what is the difference? To be honest you should be informing delivery drivers or any body that is coming there for you should be given notes to say not to park on his property from you? If it comes down to it you might have to think about putting a gravel parking area? Only thing is visitors to your neighbour would use it? Hey then you can see what it feels like? I totally agree with both sides not wanting damage and do not see what you are complaining about because he says it is not you but people delivering there for you so that still makes it your problem.

    I was told that a bee sting can help reduce the swelling and pain of arthritis by the man that taught my bee keeping class. He testified to this as a personal experience. He also said a lot of the same things you are saying about how the bees send scouts out to look for a new home and about how the stingers have a gland that pulsates the poison , almost word for word.

    Stoney I've been dealing with bees all my life. The easy way to get a swarm is to knock them off in a cardboard box take them over to the box and pore them in. Just shack the limb hard and they will fall in. If they all don't and you get the queen in they will all go to her.

    You probably had the stinger and pheromones in/on your suit! Once one stings the others react to it! I had a hive where the bees were vicious! I had to requeen the hive so I could handle them. They upset the whole bee yard!

So surprised that only the last swarm got angry. I figured they'd all be angry. Learned something new. All the best and thanks again. Very exciting to see. Cheers and Happy Easter to you both too!

    You should always use your smoker If you was to use your smoker on the last hive it calms them down Then shake the hive off the tree and they won't sting you It like stunts and a little bit Hope that helps you out have a great day

    I would sting you too if you tret my family like that, 😂😂 lift the box up so they do not have to drop so far with risk of damaging the queen. touching a hot smoker nozzle on the sting will deaden the pain as heat destroys the sting.

    Swarming bees is loss of production of honey. I think they are swarming because you give them little room, using 8 frame supers as breeder boxes is not good as they are not made for that, 8 frame supers go on top of 10 frame breeder boxes to make deeper cells to hold more honey per frame. Blocking the entrance before putting in the bees will stop them crawling into the entrance, the grass should be used to help orienrate the bees once in thier new position, it is trange to them to have to clear the entrance to get out so they take more note of the position and can return. Nothing personal but i suggest watching some bee channels and learn a bit more before showing the incorrect way to do things. Barbyard bees would be a good place to start.

    Someone has to say it, love your channel Josh but, 3 original hives, first 3 swarms came from the originals and took 50% of the bees. 3 originals now waiting for queen to hatch and get mated, this causes the hive to lose productivity while losing bees through natural attrition, a the while waiting for new bees to emerge. The 3 swarms today probably, well let’s just say for example. Each original hive had multiple Queens hatch on different frames, this can cause a virgin queen to swarm with half of the bees from the original half, so the 3 originals are now down to 25% of the bees and falling (possible all 3 swarms came from 1hive, not a good situation) to failure. Don’t get me wrong I love swarms but only when they come from someone else’s under managed hives. Split early, give them room to expand and added honey supers to get production. If you inspect and find queen cells, use those cells to make nucs until you see the queen is mated probably and has grown, then put them into a normal box to grow to a production hive strong enough to make it through winter. Just my opinion swarms from my hives is bad, I didn’t take care of them properly and have set them back. I truly hope yours become booming in production but I feel this needed said. Love your other videos but you are killing me with the swarms lives. Going to be 30 days before you see any new bees emerging from the original and today’s catches.

    You should leave your hive bodies under where the swarm originally landed until dark or lock them in until dark if you do so there is a lot less chances of them swarming back out if you do so . Love your channel I have been watching for over a year and a half keep up the good work.

    Believe it or not getting stung by honey bees seems to help with arthritis if you have it in your hands. You can search it on line I’m not kidding it has been looked into by doctors when they have bee keepers as patients. Just some trivia the actor Henry Fonda was a bee keeper. Love the videos nice to see you both in them.
