    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    You can keep the little buggers up there, I don't react well to them when they give me a cuddle.... Wish I didn't react to them as we had them when I was a kid and loved going out and checking hives

    hey @BeeMan how do the bees keep up with the truck?

    Do you block up the holes at night then transport?
    It's all fun and games till Darthvader comes along

    @Sideshow, we can pick them up from early evening when the day temp has dropped, cold or wet days hardly any bees fly and all night we are able to move them. We lightly smoke the entrances which quietens the bees, we leave the trucks running as the gentle vibration also keeps them calm. No need to block them in, 60,000 + bees in a hive need ventilation. Also I breed Italian bees for there quiet temperament. Probably would not loose more than a couple dozen bees a move. 4,320,000 a truck load.

    A good mate of mine just got into hives a couple of years back, mainly to assist with pollinating on his farm. He's become pretty fond of his bees and I get updates every couple of days. I find the whole process quite fascinating.

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Love to eat their produce.
    Pity I'm allergic to the defence weapon, even though I've been desensitized - don't push my luck around them.
    Allergic reaction to a head full of stings from guard troops - Italian Blacks that my Dad brought home from May Rd Bus Depot, Mt Roskill.
    No issues with imported disease back then.
