This is what was in the wall right beside their crawl-hole. Not bad for two days’ work.
Austin was standing there in a full bee suit and no gloves. Why? “I didn’t want them to sting me on the head.” By the end of the effort, they had not stung his hands either.
All that comb, and – we hope – the Queen, all is now safely in a bee box on the outside of the house. Stragglers do remain, and the saga may continue….

No more P.S.’s though. One post a week is ENOUGH.

I would have run out of the house and call a bee expert to take care of it 🙂
That is basically what I did. Exactly!
