This is immensely entertaining.   This man is a saint, bee whisperer, teacher, shaman, Queen handler, hive protector-humorist.   Gentle with bees and humans alike. Watch him in all kinds of settings throughout Louisiana.   The gentle giant has a way of disarming hives and groups of onlookers alike. I discovered this channel, not quite by accident, as the YouTube algorithms brought us together.  I share with you a beautiful soul brother from the lands of the South.  We belong in one hive/tribe is the mantra I hear while watching him work.

6 Days Since Hurricane Ida


Just a little update while I sit in the fuel line. 6 days since Hurricane Ida passed.

At First, He Wanted Them Gone But Let Them, Bee


Moe called me to remove a beehive that was living in his home for at least two years. At some point during the process, we discussed the idea of leaving the colony right where it was & Moe kind of dug the idea. In his area, it’s okay to have bees, well his home now is their permanent residence. I went back more than a year later for part 2 & we accessed the hive & harvested some more honey. There will be a part 3, sometime in the near future, stay tuned! Please consider subscribing to my channel if you enjoy the content, appreciate it! …JP

Why Did The Bees March Into The Box?


Why Did The Bees March Into The Box? In this video I explain why bees will enter a hive box that has housed bees previously, referring to my video “Insane Amount Of Bees March Into My Hive Box.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlGLH… I also go through a nucleus colony of bees that I performed a removal on several weeks ago. You will see a very beautiful Italian queen & I mention my favorite hive tool. I reside in New Orleans where winters are very mild so honey bees thrive & are abundant here. I fool with bees in some capacity approximately ten months of the year with the season beginning in late February/early March. I travel throughout southeast, Louisiana removing bees from unwanted places & giving them good homes where they can fly freely, pollinate the world & make honey.

Bees In Da Trash


Honey Bees decided to take up residency in yet another garbage can. Have removed several colonies from garbage cans over the years believe it or not people. The hive in question was in an unkempt backyard & I had to clear a path to even get near the thing but the bees were darlings & I had a nice & very attractive audience as well, a win-win in my book! The beehive as always was removed alive, my specialty. Hey, who doesn’t like honey bees right? If you’re new to my channel I hope you enjoy the content & if you do please share my channel with friends & loved ones. I’d really appreciate that! For my loyal watchers, you guys & gals are the best & I hope 2020 brings you health & happiness! Save the bees!

Bees In Da Couch


Bees In Da Couch, that’s right! This is actually the third couch I’ve removed bees from over the years, never a dull moment with bees folks! I can honestly say everyone had a good time during this removal process, myself of course included. The old couch in a lot in New Orleans, “Holly Grove.” Cam, the young lady in the video was clearing the lot for her father. It was overgrown to about waist height & neighbors mentioned there was this old couch full of bees. Cam called me & that’s when the fun began… This colony is now at my buddy Schawee’s camp in Gonzales, Louisiana where many of these colonies I have been removing the last few years have been going. The land comprises 3,000 acres so there is plenty of room for hundreds of hives to exist. JP the bee man is a Louisiana native born in New Orleans & fools with honey bees roughly 10.5 months of the year weather permitting. Thank you for stopping by to explore my channel & please consider subscribing if you want to see more & tell ya, friends & family, too! Hope you’re having a great day cause you know I am!

Bee Man Vs Bee Tree


ASAP Tree Company called me out to assist them with their tree removal project. They had already removed two other water oaks & the 3rd one had a decent-sized beehive in it. This was a good group of guys to work with & for the most part, things went as planned. The idea was for the tree company to lower the limb the bees were into the ground & get it out of the way so they could remove the rest of the tree. I would do my part after that which involved using a chainsaw & pry bar to open the limb & access, then remove the honey bee colony & transfer them into my domestic setup. Later on, you’ll see me feeding the colony “fondant” at their new, temporary location. If you enjoy my content, please consider subscribing to my channel for past & future videos.

Bee Man Vs Another Bee Tree

This past October, ASAP Tree Service called me to remove bees from a location they were removing three trees from. One of the trees had a good-sized beehive living in it & I performed the removal that day. The link to that video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOWEe… On March 4, 2021, ASAP called me about another bee tree not too far from the other location, perhaps a mile or so away as the crow flies. This is the video from that removal, Hope you enjoy it.
