Well I nearly had not one but 2 lots of Bees today. Friend told me of bees in a neighbours garage and said I could have them. But it had to be today because she cannot do after tomorrow.
Got suited (Borrowed from SBKA) and booted with my son James (Ed), Brand new smoker in hand, proud that it lit first time and stayed lit.
Climbed the ladder saw some bees - rather large - turned out to be White Tailed Bumble Bees, in the roof space of the garage.
Neighbour has some bees in their roof - across the road, climbed the ladder, Red Tailed Bumble Bees
Just my luck. Not one but two hives, neither I can have - Not supposed to move bumbles anyways, unless you have to.
I was told I looked very professional but felt like and idiot as they were the wrong bees.
Never mind! - All good practice.
