We went to a house for the second time to remove bees. This was do to the homeowner not plugging up the hole. I learned something, never let the homeowner take care of anything! lol. Anyways, a swarm had moved in after the first extraction and had been there less than 2 weeks. They had already built 8 layers about 18 inches long and 12 inches deep. Just a wonderful sight. We didn't smoke them at all but just used some homemade comb catcher frames to put the brood in and vacuumed the rest. As we are almost done the queen walks out right in front of us on to the ceiling. Low and behold it was the first time that had happened and we left out queen catcher in the other car. She flew to the window seal and we were able to get her on some comb and put her in the box. We got a lot of brood and we for sure got the queen. I would call that a 100% success!!!! We have been learning a lot but this was by far the best one. These bees look real strong and I am hoping they continue to do so.
