Yesterday I removed a queenless colony from a brick column. Today, a colony from a vacant house with lots of water damage.

Wax moth cocoons, something from the past. Hive was healthy with good numbers.

JP, how did you know that the colony in brick was queenless?

There were perhaps four or five comb sections, a couple were longer than the others about 10-11" long, no brood and many attempted, open queen cells.

They had obviously gone into survival mode as the comb sections were all honey filled.

My take is the swarm had a virgin that may have been eaten by a bird on her maiden voyage.

I have been watching all your cut out pics. Thanks for sharing them. One quick question? Do you do the repair work yourself after the removal or is the owner responsible for the repairs?

Thanks,
GW

I have a couple of close friends that are contractors that I work closely with. I always offer repairs and I do some of my own as well.
