I used smoke & Honey B Gone to move them out

I tried cutting into the tire with this huge grinder I have with a diamond wheel & even the sawzall & that baby wasn't budging, so I had no choice but to run them out

Wow!  I know some of those tires can be pretty tough but I would have thought the sawzall would have gotten the job done....Interesting!

I've used a 4" angle grinder with an abrasive wheel to cut tires before. A diamond wheel won't work.

I took the diamond wheel off & tried with an abrasive wheel but that didn't get me anywhere either, the diamond wheel, as you mentioned didn't do squat! My grinder can take up to an 8" wheel, its a beast that you have to hold with two hands or you'll go flying into the next county Smiley

OH a good one JP.  I am going to send this one to my beekeeping friend Joanne, who thought she could run out a colony of bees that were in a tree, (oh whats the name of the other repellent you sometimes use?)

This will show her how to use the repellent. Oh Yeah, Beequick.

Thanks for sharing, wonderful as usual

Nice job JP, good to see you posting.

Looked like you were sitting in poison ivy doing that removal?

Did you finish removing the rest of the comb after catching the queen?

I would think as long as there is brood comb some of the nurse bees wouldn't abandon it even though you had the queen in your hive?


Thanks.   .....Don

  JP..........
   Looks like you found the meaning of steel belted radial tires on heavy trucks even the sidewalls have steel belts.There are very few bias tires run on heavy trucks since the mid 90s.

Don, once I had the queen & most had gravitated to the set up, we moved the tire & that's when I smoked them & applied even more repellant to run what was left off

I pulled out a bunch of comb but most of it came out in pieces & a good bit wound up having repellant on it

The tire was buried underground after the removal

Cool video, JP!

You know what amazes me? It always amazes me that you take a simple hive-tool blob of bees and shake it into a box. One hive-tool blob at a time. AND THEY STAY. I find myself thinking that a small blob of bees won't make a bit of difference when it comes to influencing the entire colony, but it does. I need to slow down and take smaller steps, yes?
