Nice little, Nope! May 5, 2009
« on: May 05, 2009, 11:48:30 PM »
Was hoping to get a nice little colony from this wall but instead this little colony had shbs and wax moth and maybe 50 bees, very little capped brood with a mature queen.

Would have been easy going in from the inside and cutting the sheetrock, but inside was a young mother and her infant daughter.

All they have to do now is a little painting.

Here's some pics: http://picasaweb.google.com/pyxicephalus/May52009?authkey=Gv1sRgCOSsx4GBzuzl4gE#

JP, oh brother, too bad, that sounds like it was a total waster of time.  Sad colony eh?  Beautiful day in the great life, health.  Cindi

Cindi, it was a complete downer, poor little girls. :(

Well, one bright side is that I did get paid for my efforts.
