    Default November Hive in SoCal

    My friend showed me this in his backyard, he wants it gone! It's about 15 feet up, otherwise looks pretty straightforward.

    Looks to be about 2-3 times the size of a 5 gallon paint bucket. Any suggestions for making the most of this find?

    Thorough Bee Vacuum onto drawn frames in the Beemaster style vacuum. Add cut and banded comb to second box. You have enough volume to fill the two boxes.

    Thanks for the response, and the BeeVac recommendation.

    I wish I had that much drawn comb, I'll double up on empty frames and rubber bands. Still may have excess bees, is it kosher to dump loose bees into other hives?
