Giant Honey Bee aka Apis Dorsata


Here is a fun, short video on hunting honey from the Giant Honey Bee. Clearly shot oversees by amateurs, it shows the technology used in 3rd world countries.

Nice Prime Swarm and a new Video


Swarm calls this weekend were OK, had a dud swarm of less than a pound of bees on Friday that I just threw into a hive to up the numbers. Then on Sunday I had the biggest swarm I’ve seen. Likely 8-10 lb.

Video I added was a swarm capture and a honey raid.
