Today I removed a hive from a soffit of a fake dormer. They were decently behaved bees but the homeowner could not mow his lawn with out being harassed. The homeowner told me he had been battling the hive for 2 years. Even repeated poison sprayings and attempts to seal in the bees did not deter them. They were an industrious bunch and had about 5-8 gallons of honey comb. I would imaging this would be around 40 lbs of honey. It also looked like the hive had recently swarmed. Anyway I found the queen and placed her in the box. The honeybees are moving into their new box as I type this.
