You folk may have heard about 5 weeks ago of a lady that had bees in here house in Greenville SC. The story made CNN and was syndicated in many papers across the US. The lady was terrorfied of the bees and slept with an EPI Pen at night because she was allergic. A beekeeper came and tried to do a trap out with little success after five weeks. The one way trap wasn't working and the bees were still getting into the floor.

Well the son of this lady called me and asked me to do the removal and I agreed. About two days later the mother died (not bee related) and I didn't get to do the removal right away. The son called me back about a week ago and wanted to get it done so he could put his moms home on the market. This guy was a wonderful son. Well I did the removal and I see why the mom was worried. There was about 10 gallons of honey in the floor. The tough thing about this one was that it was in a very strange spot that I haven't see in a removal before. There was a small square space above the basement retaining wall and the outside second story wall. It made a perfect square. The other problem was that I couldn't get to it after I cut the wall downstairs because of the floor joist position and the retaining wall position. I ended up cutting the sub-flooring.

All of it and it was thick and good. All brand new honey. None was from last year. All the comb was new. Already strained and in a bucket. I figure about $500.00 worth.
