While I appreciate the offer, I'm probably not going to take you up on it. West Palm beach is a fair ways away and this colony should be rather manageable given it's appearantly small size, and the fact that the guards must all be sleaping. This morning I looked at it before catching the bus and there were a few bees buzzing around the crack. After school I returned to find that it was practicly devoid of bees (the enterence at least). I waited for about half an hour and no bees showed up. At this point I became immpacient that they may have left and hit the enterence area with a rock (like any adolecent) still nothing happened. Finally, I got a coat hanger and like an idiot, jabbed it into the enterence (I was wearing a veil and gloves with a lit smoker) still no bees came out. Would it be uncommon for a hive to completely abscond just a few days after their arival? Could the bees have senced that they were making thier hive in a VERY unstable area? I'm just sort of puzzled right now but, if I see more bees at that crack again tomarow morning I guess I'll tear it apart and see what's there. Good news is that it souldn't affect anything structural given the hive is actually the farthest possible location from the walls of the house. In summary, thankyou for the offer of assistance, but, I feel that, that would be best reserved for if a fully established hive were found on my property. I'm just a little confused right now, if I hadn't seen those dozen or so bees flying in and out of that crack yesterday, I'd never beleive there's a hive there.
