I got a call from a friend yesterday asking if I would go look at three hives that are in an old abandoned store about twenty miles from here. They are in the process of tearing down the large building and found three seperate bee hives. He asked if I would be interested in taking them out of the walls, all at a height from waist high top approximately six to eight foot high. I know that this is a bad time for cut outs, but if I don't try to save them, they will spray them and kill them so they can finish the dismantelling of the building. They have the contract to tear the building down, and it has to be done within a certain time limit. They can't wait till spring when it would be warm. I will check the hives out tomorrow to see if it is worth the trouble to try to save them. Hate to see them killed,if I can't save them. (By the way, they have already taken the walls partly down, so I don't know if they are exposed to the cold weather. I may try to save some of them if possible.
