Well I run 2 hours from home Thursday after work.  A nice couple had about an 10 foot run in the living room ceiling packed with bees and honey. 

I let them keep all the honey in the capped, uncapped comb.  I kept the brood of course.  Brood alone completely filled 1 deep box.  Then I vacuumed up all the bees.  There must have been 15 lbs of bees I sucked up with the vac.  Dang that is a lot of bees.

The wife was happy I had to tear into her walls/ceiling to remove the bees.  She told me that now her husband has to redo the living room....  evil
I love her logic.  Im just glad I redid the inside of my house with my own free will.... grin

Yeah.  my brain keeps cramping every time I go out and do these jobs and I forget to bring the digital with me.  Mrs Dougherty kept taking pictures while I was cutting out the comb.  Im not sure she actually got a picture of the entire colony or just me putting the comb in frames and placing the rubber bands over the top of the comb.

I will call her and see if she will share the pics anyway.  Give me a good reason to give a followup call and see how things are going...
