Two hives, one house
« on: July 22, 2008, 07:41:44 PM »
Tomorrow I am going to look at a house with two hives at the opposite ends.  One hive has been there for two years.  The other hive has been there for 12 years!  Apparently they are ready to get rid of them because the noise of the bees has gotten loud enough to keep them awake at night.

Should be interesting.

Sprayed.  Both of them.  And a big job on a very rotten wall.  I walked away from this one.
