My fix it guy learned a lesson on this one, that bees can come back and enter through a very small hole.
As y'all know who make sbbs, you better use hardware cloth no bigger than 1/8 of an inch or they will build comb through it.
So if this house looks familiar, it is. Last year I removed a colony from this same spot, April 18, 2008.
There was a lot of water damage and my fix it guy made lots of repairs but when he put everything back he underestimated be's ability to slip through small openings.
Long story short a swarm found the spot and moved in. I removed this colony May 1st, and no I did not charge for this one.
