This is the skinny in a nut shell.
This good old boy from Texas' "podna" picked up the cover of the enclosure where this colony was located about two weeks prior to our visit and at that instant the colony was doomed.
Kinda like a colony in a tree that has fallen.
Comb sections mashed and honey everywhere, one big mess and a perfect set up for SHB to wreak their merciless havoc.
The bees were queenless and gentle.
The gnats were bountiful, relentless and straight from the pits of hell! :evil:
Yep, for a good part of the removal, the customer watched "Gun Smoke". :-D
Watching Emil do "the gnat dance" and play Hacky sack with a garbage bag is definitely worth the price of admission on this one folks! 8-)
