Nice cut out that was at eye level. The home owners were a couple of real nice folks. Suzy had done her research on the internet and knew quit a bit about bees and her husband John was interested in them but allergic too bee stings.

[attachment=6:yzxhpoge]100_2002.JPG[/attachment:yzxhpoge] The 2 x 12 and the entrance to the hive. A couple of cuts with the saws all to cut the nails in half and the board can easily be removed. [attachment=5:yzxhpoge]100_2003.JPG[/attachment:yzxhpoge] The hive, about a dozen or so combs that will fit nicely into deep frames. the bees started out very gentle and then the mood shifted just a little and had to suit up.

[attachment=1:yzxhpoge]100_2063.JPG[/attachment:yzxhpoge] Found her walking around in the empty cavity. After cutting out all of the combs, I placed a small piece of comb (about the size of your hand back into the corner and the queen came out of hiding after a few minutes.
