A sneak peak from the rear view of a shed wall that
had fallen under the weight of the honeycomb!
This wall was so heavy! deWayne and I had to carry it to the front of the building to
escape the agressiveness of the hive around back.
A pic of the colony from behind, I love this pic of deWayne.
A pic of pollen, brood, honey, and bees!
Two baskets of bees!
The outside wall is a blank canvas now.
Backside cavity empty.
Whew! What a job!

|My grandchild, Laura Grace, spotted this Bee Assassin bug killing one of our honeybees!|
|God works in mysterious ways! |
A recent bee job had this posted on the wall, a word of encouragement that we needed.
|No, that's not Santa! |
That's my brave little hubby.
The arch was so steep on this roof,
we had to get a ladder while the homeowner held it with his foot.
Back on the ground to gather tools.
With roof opened, now it's time to get the bees.
What a man!
How cool is this!
deWayne almost dehydrated on this job.
It was so hot!!
deWayne is cutting out all the honeycomb.
These bees were really gentle.
The honey was delicious!!!
Getting ready to seal the deal,
this four hour job is almost complete.
Ok, so I'm on the ground taking pics of the bee job,
when all of a sudden I capture these two lizards!
Closing up shop!
And dumping them in a box...
Another fine job, Mr. Jaudon!!
|We received a call from this homeowner stating bees were coming out of the ground. |
By the way, if they're coming out of the ground, it's usually yellow jackets!
|deWayne takes a quick look and discovers honeybees |
inside the water meter box.
Notice the yellow honeycomb sticking up on the green lid of the water meter.
The honeybees work very fast, and so did we.
This removal was short and sweet!
