Ha! What a small world! Cool to have you on here. I learned almost everything I know about beekeeping from the good folks on this site (half of which are sick of hearing me ask questions by now).
The removal should get interresting because there's also a bumble-bee nest in the same wall, and I might not have any choice but to open both up at the same time. I'm hoping I can avoid that though and open the bumble-bee nest up first. My plan is to suck the bumble bees into the regular shop vac, then screen off the shop vac so they can't get out and connect it to the beevac to do the honey bees with.
I almost didn't have any place for these bees either, but I've been building more boxes and thankfully Walter T. Kelly Co. came through for getting frames in time.
