Did a cutout today on a swivel rocking chair in a junk pile. This is what it looked like when I started.*





This is after I pulled it out of the pile and removed some junk.*



Quite a few nice bees. Found the queen with some bees on the side of a fiberglass dune buggy body!

Also brought home 2 six foot sections of 10 inch corrugated plastic septic tank pipe full of bees and comb with a colony in each one. Just loaded them in the pickup and will figure out how to get them out and hived tomorrow.

It was in a junk pile in the country behind a house. The owner was going to burn the pile but thankfully gave me the chance to get the bees first.

Thank God for bee vacs. I vacuumed a ton of bees before i started cutting, which kept most bees from becoming soggy honey messes.
