First removal off the season
« on: April 25, 2009, 05:50:03 PM »
Went and did my first removal of the season today. I took about 3lbs of bee out of a water meter , bee's where not too aggressive but will be keeping an eye on them over the next day or too. Used my bee vac based on Robo's World design it worked a treat. Very very pleased with it, i even got the queen Took out 3 frames of brood and comb , never seen so many bee's in such a small area of space almost thought i might need a second deep box.

They were in a water meter in the ground?  Never heard of that.

Glad you got them out.
