    Default Work came to a screeching halt!

    And all it took was a few girls to make it so......

    Roofers refused to continue until they were gone.

    Peeled to sheathing off to find this... the smaller comb.

    ALL honey in this (and several other) combs. 100# or so was a good ballpark guess.

    This was the biggest section of comb (brood comb). It was ginormous!

    Roofers finished today and took some honey home for their patience.

    Good deal! Looks like a nice colony to have. Do you look for the queen or just vac her up if you don't see her? How do you hive them? Just pour them in with your frames you made from their comb and hope they stay? Looks like some good genetics to have there.

    Look for the queen always, but sometimes it doesn't work out that way.
    Hiving is done by watching this vid.



    I haven't had one leave yet.
