This one was quick and easy. Featuring Peggy's masterful camera work grin (it's kinda like Blair witch).

I did a cut out of some water meter bees last year about that same size. When the person called me, I would have laid odds that they were yellow jackets coming out of the water meter cover. Thats why I dont buy into the whole 'swarm trap needs to be 15 feet in the air' rule anymore.

Nice, easy catch.

This was the third removal from water meters that we've done in the past two weeks. We do removals for 3 different utilities commissions and get a ton of them every year.

The State's position is that these underground bees are Africanized and should be exterminated, but then again, the powers that be feel that external colonies on trees must be Africanized as well...go figure.

Talk about an itty bitty hive.   Don't leave a bee behind, they need every one.   Good to see some tape on the hole in the lid.  Very small hive.   Good video.
