    $4 an ounce??? As P.T. Barnum is quoted to have said: “there’s a sucker born every minute”.

    If you’re on a budget and a hobby beekeeper, check out Pestmall.com. Their stuff is not commercial grade but is VERY reasonably priced and is more than adequate for the hobby beekeeper. Also, their customer service is very good and most items ship for free.

    Ceebs – thanks for taking the time to post this. New beeks also might want to watch “Vanishing of the Bees” that is available on Netflix live streaming.

    David – Thanks for taking the time to reply. What is the purpose of the grass in front of the screen?

    I didn’t know Berne made bee suits. Are they actual bee suits or just white coveralls?

    I get 2 or 3 calls a week from people who want me to do complicated removals for “free bees”. I’m more than happy to grab a nearby swarm or two for free but, doing complicated cutouts for free won’t pay for my gas and equipment or the $!000 I just spent to put a new clutch in my truck.

    Susan – I’ve heard adding Pinesol to water will discourage bees. It might be worth a try in a water fountain.

    Good job Susan. Urban bees rock! I’ve talked to a couple of professional beekeepers in the Antelope Valley the last couple of weeks who are already having to feed their bees. This year could be even worse than last year.

    I grabbed a nice HEAVY swarm just before lunch. They are boxed up and ready for adoption. First come, first serve. I live in Valencia, 5 miles from Magic Mountain, I-5 exit at Lyons Ave. (661) 312-3910

    Swarms have been picked up. There will “bee” others. Bee activity has really picked up in Santa Clarita the past couple of weeks.

    Speaking of suits, 97 here today in Valencia. It gave me an opportunity to wear my new ventilated bee suit for the first time. I loved it other than the fact it is easy to tear. I’m not sure how well it well hold up longer term for heavy, commercial use.

    Doing commercial removals on almost a daily basis, I still manage to get stung a few times a week. The worst places? above the eye, on the ear, and ankle are among my least favorites.
