Kitchen Ceiling
« on: January 31, 2009, 06:55:51 PM »
Removed a hive from a kitchen ceiling. Wasn't to bad. This is the first time I didn't spot the queen but I was sure I got her in the box. After I had put most of the frames in the bees started moving in force into the hive box. So they seemed pretty happy.

The last shots are of fiberglass insulation to make sure that the no new bees move in.

Sorry for the low quality O shot them with my phone and not my regular camera.

Sincerely,
Brendhan

Nice, neat job there, understudy...

I did one similar to that in 2007.

Looks like you finally got a normal one. What's next, a hive with paneling on one side of a wall, or a t 111 sheet that you remove for easy access. :-D
Not use to seeing you do one where you're not standing in fire ants or hungry hawks are staring you down! Great job, BTW!

Understudy,  How were the bees getting in to the ceiling area?  Also,  Does the comb fit neatly into a standard frame :roll:  They look so perfect.
My favorite comedy program used to be Glenn Beck--The only thing is that after I heard the same joke over and over again it became BOOOORING.....

People who have inspired me throughout my life---Pee-wee Herman, Adolph Hitler, George W. Bush, Glenn Beck.
Notice I did not say they were people who I admire !!!

The bees were getting in through a small opening where the flashing had a small gap underneath. And yes in this case the comb just about fit perfect into a medium frame. :) We like jobs like that.
