"And seriously he burned down his fence? and he knows your a BEEKEEPER? Why not just come and get you in the first place LOL?"
His neighbor, who saw his fence on fire, called me after the 2 of them got the fire out. It took an hour to get it out, he almost had to call the fire department. The whole time there were thousands of bees all flying around him. He did not get stung. Surprisingly considering the way he described the flailing while trying to get it out.
He has my number now for the next swarm. I found the parent hive in a large pine tree not more than 10' from the fence.
