Awesome Queen, Nice Swarm!
« on: April 04, 2008, 10:30:39 PM »
I posted some pics of a hive I removed 9days ago. The one that had two queens, red paint on bottom combs. The guy I removed them for was going to close up the exterior but waited a little too long. Now remember, the swarm that moved in, pictured, is 8 days or so old. Nice juicy queen too.

Also have some pics of a nice swarm that was about to enter a soffit. Was able to get them before her majesty moved on in. The people were very greatful.
