Opened a hive up this morning that was in a wall of a shop.  It was about 4' wide 8' tall, three studs/sections. It was overcast and a little wet out and the bees were not to mad.  ALOT of bees in this thing.  All was going well, about halfway through, noticed a few bees fighting.  I turn around and see the lid to the bucket of honey, and my cutting table covered in bees.  After a few minutes,  everything was covered in bees.  Total robbing, I figure the queen is dead.  Little did I know, and the homeowner did not mention that past the treeline on his property his neighbor had around 20 hives.  I did what I could, the job is done, the comb was shredded.  The robbers chewed open capped brood in the frenzy.  Ill go back tomorrow and and look for a cluster somewhere I guess.
