I'm worried that it may be a fiasco. It's in a phone company 3.5' tall, 8" diameter cylinder that I am sure covers terminal connections. At least it is end of the underground line. Loosen 1 bolt and turn it 1/2" and it should slide straight up. Bees were in it either last year or the year before, the property owners called the phone co., an exterminator showed up and sprayed them. Made them mad big time. My worry is what the comb is attached to and how it is going to be shaped to salvage the brood and hopefully get the queen. I hope it's attached to a terminal board sticking up inside the tube and not the tube.
