You'd be grumpy also if you had to go through what I did last night! First off, the apartment was supposed to be vacant(not!) and the building owner and myself had to move furniture, etc... for me to access TWO large colonies.
I did the huge one first, no vapor barrier, lots of bees, lots of honey, took some decent pics of this one.
The other one, no vapor barrier, a little less comb, albeit they built into the next wall section, but a ton more bees in the other section and later on in the process they decided to be just as grumpy as I am this morning. I may not swell as much when I get stung anymore, but they still hurt, especially the ones in sensitive areas and the repetitive areas, my fingers and neck.
Let's not forget the one I took over my right eye, that one actually gave me a china ball, and no I don't have a picture of it (too grumpy for that shot!)
Sorry, I didn't get many shots of the second removal, but well, I just wasn't quite into it, with the roaches everywhere and stinging bees, it just wasn't the most fun removal. :-P
The one thing that kept me going through all this was listening to my tigers edge Texas out in game one of the best of three in the college world series. Man, those Texans had a pitcher in there throwing 97 mph fast balls. Lord have mercy, not many major leaguers can throw that kind of steam!
Well, here are the pics: http://picasaweb.google.com/pyxicephalus/June222009#
First set is one I did Friday, (what was in the roof section) 2nd set is one I'm estimating, others are from last night.
