A week ago I had been asked about taking bees out of a shed. They had been there for a couple of years and wanted to know if I would take them out. Well went and checked out the shed on Thursday and a good many bees were on the outside of the shed. With the studs being 16 inches apart I hoped the bees did not go on the other side of the stud. Well Saturday went and did the cutout. With ten foot walls the bees had built comb that filled almost the entire wall. I did not have a vac but did try to call around to get one but could not get in touch with people so. The problem I had was most of the cut out I had to do on the latter and did not find the queen. Took some the hive with a deep and medium full of brood to split the hive and filled another deep and medium for the other. Does anyone near Gastonia, NC have vac that I could use or even rent to finish making sure the bees are all cleaned out? I left a good mass on the building even though I tried to brush them into a box to put in the hive. JP your are the man when it comes to doing this. Any help is grateful. I did take some pictures and may post them later. I also took out about a hundred pounds of honey new and old.
