My friend Rich and I did an easy removal last Friday.  This was Rich's first day ever to don veil and work a hive, and he did great.  The bees were under the floor board of a shed.  There wasn't a lot of clearance under the floor board so the comb wasn't very deep.  We were able to lift the plywood floor up and turn it over onto a couple of saw horses.  Rich worked the bee vac while I strapped comb into medium frames.  We go 10 full frames of brood comb and lots of uncapped honey/nectar.  Rich even spotted the queen which I have not been ablt to do on my previous removals.  I am hoping the pics show up... I have been having difficulty getting the pics to load.

Cheers!
