If I Hadn't Caught It On Camera You Wouldn't Have Believed Me

Another awesome day in North Alabama today friends. After really rough day yesterday, with tornadoes running all through the state, we are out catching a huge honeybee swarm from a cedar tree.
I can't believe it myself that this is the second swarm I've caught so far and both queens were captured before I ever shook the branch. This is really making swarm catching fun.
I hope you all are enjoying my 2021 Bee season kickoff with these swarm shakes. I sure am. I believe it puts me ahead of my buddy's Jpthebeeman, 628DirtRooster and Jeff Horchoff. Although I know they will catch up quick, it's nice to lead the race at some point.
Enjoy everyone and I hope you enjoyed a little fun from Yappybeeman.
I get calls like this all the time, something flying in a small hole and it looks like bees or yellow jacket wasps. sometimes even for a squirrel or a raccoon. I enjoy every new experience when it comes to removing bees from structures. Construction obstacles always seem to challenge me with every job. As a bee remover, I find the good and bad in construction design. Some things look great but make it easy for bees to set up shop and call it home also. Other times, bees move in due to a lack of home maintainace. But no matter the reason, Yappy Beeman is ready to come rescue the honey bees.
Check out my friends video channels also. Jpthebeeman , 628Dirtroosterbees and Jeff Horchoff for some more great honey bee videos.
Yappy Beeman is a professional bee remover performing live honey bee removals in Alabama as "Alabama Bee Rescue" and relocates them to apiaries away from residential areas so they can rebuild and thrive as a honey bee colony producing honey. Yappy is an Alabama Beekeepers association member that has performed over 500 live bee removals. Yappy with the help of his great friend and mentor; JpTheBeeman, a professional beekeeper , has learned many skills to remove bee swarms and honey bee colonies safely for the bees and homeowners alike.

  • Bro I barely even messed with bees and I got stung 12 times on the back. And it was a nest under a rock that I stepped on. Yet this guy manages to bring down an entire swarm and “so far only got stung twice”

    • @Yappy Beeman yeah it sucked. I was a kid though. Fortunately my dad was there and he picked me up and ran as he was running away from the bees chasing him. He got stung a couple times, but the worst one was that he got stung on his bald head. Very cool video man.

  • I had a friend named Jesus when I was a kid that bees hated. Anytime Bees were around they would literally fight him to the death. At first I didn't believe him when he told me but then I saw one fly up face to face with him and proceed to joust until it stung him in the side and he killed it. It was one of the funniest things I have ever seen. I probably watched him get stung 6 or 7 times while minding his own business.
