Did a Bee removal job in a barn converted into a little hobby work area.

This colony was huge took a good 3 hours for my wife and I to cut all the comb out and place the brood comb in frames. As usual it was past dark 30 when we finished so we could collect all the foragers who do return for the night.
I have a policy of no bee left behind so will even return the next morning if the property owner calls and says there are bees looking for their comb.

Well the pictures for this one doesn't want to work today.

We were called again two years later as another swarm had moived in again.

Hi Al. Great pictures. Thank you for sharing with us.

No I don't have a lot of hives about 100 at the present time at 9 out yards.

Did a removal at this dome house also a bit ago.
