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. grin
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 rolleyes  They look so perfect.

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. Smiley We like jobs like that.
