    This monster hive ended up being 30" wide by 10' long!
    According to the homeowner, it has been there for years.
    We did capture the Queen which was just walking around along with roughly 30,000 bees. We figured we also retrieved 75-90lbs. of great tasting honey as well.
    It took two of us five hours to remove.
    OK.... 1 hour for lunch. So, 4 hours. lol
    Great day all around... and not one single sting.

    No doubt on the queen. Oddly enough the bees were quite gentle as we were tearing apart all their hard work!
    Thanks for the reply.

    Wow thats pretty amazing. I attempted to get a look at a cutout yesterday and I pried off a few pieces of siding and I had hundreds of really angry bees. When I go back to do the cutout I'll have to bring my smoker and wear an extra layer of clothes under my suit. If I find the queen I will kill her and add the bees to one of my other hives.
