I'm curious to hear about this one as well. Sounds like someone trying to get a free cutout done, but that could be just the cynic in me coming out  grin

If you can keep your head when all about you are loosing theirs, you probably don't fully understand the situation!

You would be correct. It is a colony that has been established for 3-4 months. The inside of the house has just been renovated so the job has to be done from the outside. Exterior is chamfer board and is outside my capabilities. I have contacted  a builder that I do work for (also a beek) and have requested he do a quote to remove and refit the boards.

I'll keep you updated.

I should also mention that the fact I dont have a bee vac is delaying the removal. I'm in the process of building one though.

Good call. That's my winter project, along with a big stack of supers grin

No, the inside has just been renovated so they don't want to tear it down. The outside hasn't been done yet so they don't mind a bit of damaged paint.
