yes I was using a vacume I made that sits on top of the brood chamber I saw the plans here on BeeSource. These Bees were very calm I was only stung 2 times in the nose. My Vail would push back when I looked up into the Floor and they stung me thru the screen. It was alot of fun Kind of like a Rush. I think I am goung to make some kind of backpack vacume for future removals. Its cumbersome to put the box on top of another ladder and work it up high like that.
