These were two hives about six feet apart on the same wall about 2 ft x 7 ft in size. First hive appeared to have swarmed and not as many bees as I would have thought. The second hive had good numbers. It was a hard removal because they had attached to old drywall. Took 8 hrs to get both hives out by myself in an old abandoned home set to be demolished. One of those jobs you make sure you don't fall through the floor. The neighbor said the hives been in the building 30 plus years but who knows. I took out 4 1/2 five gal buckets of capped honey from both hives. Drenched with sweat all day not too fun  Sad. The money helps and getting more bees too!  grin

There must be at least 30 pounds of honey in comb in the last pic.  Nice cutout.

One nice thing about that job, you don't have to worry about how much damage you do or cleaning up.
That's a lot of honey.

Problem with some of the old comb is the cells don't hold as much honey as you would expect. I would estimate about five gals of honey after I crush and strain it all and it is nice not having cleanup and throwing unusable comb in the weeds out back. grin
