The guy called and asked how much I would charge to remove bees from a box. I told him I would have to see the box 1st. When we got there he showed us the “box”. It used to be used to hold chicken keeping equipment.  I opened it and was surprised to see the whole box was full of comb and bees. The panels must have been three feet long by 18 inches wide. There wasn’t much brood, and the comb was dark brown to black, so we knew it was old. We were able to pull 13 lbs of honey out of it. We put them in a nuc but are going to move them very soon because they are too big to stay in that small box.
