The Game Plan:
Arrive after dark when bees are more docile. Suit up. Spray bees with sugar water. Cut off comb a piece at a time using butter knife. Attach comb to top bar using plastic mesh and staple gun. Insert in top bar bee box. Repeat until all comb is attached to top bars and hanging in box. Locate the ball ‘o bees. Carefully brush into bucket and dump into box with a firm shake. Locate any additional clumps of bees and brush into box. Seal up box entrance and put lid on box. Transport to farm in Honda without getting stung.
The Sting Score:
Chris and I agreed, one of the coolest and most terrifying things we’ve ever done. Thankful we could do it with friends!
