Well, thanks for the tips guys. I went yesterday and extracted the bees from the wall in the garage and it went extremely well.
We got lots of good pics. There were 10 combes between the frames with some other smaller ones. They were each about 18-24 inches long! Very nicely constructed and full of honey and brood, but lots of varroa.
In fact, I even spotted one crawling on the comb without even looking for them.
I don't have any spare frames to put them in and I figure the brood is no good by now. What should I do with all of the comb since I don't have any spare frames??
By the way, I was misquoted a few times, but the newspaper came out and did a FRONT PAGE story on the whole event. I am hoping that it did much good in educating the public about bees. I am just afraid that I will have to turn people down now for extractions due to too many calls that I figure will be coming in.
