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.
