Bee Removal March 30th.
« on: April 01, 2009, 01:13:24 PM »
Had a hard time finding this one due to it being located inside a closet ceiling. Had a very small area to work in but the swarm had just colonized the void and there wasn't much comb. Comb that was there was new. Fairly easy removal. Got about 4 to 5 pounds of bees.

Looked like a very young hive, correct?

Queen probably hadn't even started laying right? I like those, just a big swarm.

Scott, beauty!!!  Still envy all you that have so many swarms/cutouts to get, lucky yous!!!!!  Have that wonderfully great and awesomely cool day, great health.  Cindi
