making a smoke hole
woops the bees arent there :? after all. opposite wall .... figures :roll:
it was like this on everywindow.....thank god for the bee vax 2000!!!
The vertical part of the hive approx 2.5m high and not very wide, it contained 3 and sometime 4 combs.
The queen was hiding down here, i couldnt access her untill sunday....i knew becasue the first three boxes of bees i took home were god dam wild when i dropped them into their new home....i have never been chased quite like that before.....its was like a cartoon...a big trail of bees chasing after me.
Last remaining cluster of bees on freshly drawn comb, which contained the queen. this was the second part of the hive approx 3.5m deep and very tight. i had to remove all of the comb and mess before i could even see this cluster.
