I nearly sprayed coffee all over my laptop!  That Andy is one patient guy!  I love it at the end when he puffs smoke in her direction and it chokes her!

Thanks Riverrat needed a good  laugh. With brood in the hive here was most likely a queen. I like how sympathetic Andy was...NOT

Thanks, that was hilarious! Don't know who to feel sorry for-her, the bees, or Andy! :laugh:

 A mess up if ever was one, don't think I would have put that video online.

 :-\\ That was hilarious. At first I thought it was a parody but when she held up the frame and said, "this is full of honey" I realized it wasn't! HAHAHA!!!!!!!!!

I have NEVER EVER seen a funnier bee video!!!   I was expecting the camera to shake from laughter.  Andy is unquestionably the star of the show and deserves a prize for impeccable patience.  How he did it I'll never know. 

I dare not say anything more, lest I lose my friends on this forum, and get accused of being sexist. [and I am definitely not, believe it or not].

I watched it with my husband and I was laughing so much at the way she talked to her husband and he just nods and does his thing and then he puffs smoke in her face, I lost it.  :P

Riverrat, how did you ever come across this link?  Could they possibly be members of this forum?

Came back to view the video a second time, this time with my wife at my side.  Together we both enjoyed a good laugh. 

Where is this "team" of "beekeepers" located?    I sincerely hope that the next time they try to merge hives they don't attempt it at night.

I came across another video by them and she was all astir about finding small hive beetles and pretty sure they came up in the package they got from Georgia. Don't know what part of the country they are in but if it's in the south they were already there. :)

Oh Lordy, this was hilarious.  He is so passive/aggressive with her and she is clueless.
