    the bottom on this trailer was thin metal sheets, never did a removal before with a pair of tin snips lol, ok started cutting small holes in spots to see where the hive ended, started at a spot where a wire goes up into the floor, about a 3/4 in hole, the hive tuned out to be 18 inches wide by about 6 feet (yep put a 2nd box on the bee vac right away lol) I banded up 14 frames of brood and food as well as getting a 5 gallon bucket of comb honey, I did see some old swarm cells and I think this is the parent hive of the other trailer hive.
