NOVA chronicles a year in the life of a bee colony with stunning images that take viewers inside the innermost secrets of the hive. The documentary team spent a year developing special macro lenses and a bee studio to deliver the film’s astonishing sequences. These include the “wedding flight” of the colony’s virgin queen as it mates in mid-air with a drone; the life-and-death battle between two rival queens for the colony’s throne; and the defeat and death of a thieving wasp at the entrance to the hive. The show also explores such mysteries as the famous “waggle dance” with which scout bees signal the exact direction and distance of nectar sources to the rest of the hive. A vivid picture emerges of the bee’s highly organized social life, revolving around the disciplined sharing of construction tasks, the collection of nectar, and warding off enemies.

I would like to give a SPECIAL thank you to MICHELLE DONALDSON, who tracked down David the Bee Keeper and set this entire video up!! I visited Michelle in the hospital last month as she was getting her second stint of chemo therapy for AML LEUKEMIA and she is currently awaiting a bone marrow transplant. Any love and support to help her ease some of the financial strain of medical bills would go a long way. Please check out her page below. Thank you!

Back in 2001, while young L.A. Beast was hitting golf balls into the woods at his parents house, he accidentally stepped on and crushed open a very angry and aggressive bee hive while retrieving his balls. As his mom and sister looked on from the living room window, they saw young L.A. Beast frantically swinging his golf club like a mad man, jumping up and down as he was getting stung more than 21 times by these angry critters. For the past 13 years, the L.A. BEAST has been terrified of BEES and everything BEE related and today, under the spirit of The Ultimate Warrior, he plans on CONQUERING his fear of BEES by Chugging down a GALLON OF HONEY while an entire nest of bees colonize on his face!!

Special Thank You to David Saraf (A BeeMan Services) who has been removing BEES in the Los Angeles are for the past 35 years. Please check out his link below and tell him L.A. BEAST sent you:

Special Thanks to my EMT ROOMATE for the expert medical supervision:

We did this last year but weren’t as well prepared. This year went much better and was much less painful. I’m claiming the world record for swarm or cluster captures. We ended up splitting some of these as we unloaded. Total ending count was 25 hives.
Just for clarification these are clusters of misplaced bees and not actual swarms. There is NO queen in these clusters.

Here is the link to the one we did last year:
