A while back someone had us remove a speaker with bees in it. We took the whole thing including the box. We sat it with some of our other hives meaning to remove them soon. We got busy and time went by, the box was made out of particle board and it was in the rain. When we finally got to it they had filled most of the box. when we started touching the box it fell apart. We got them into a new hive and they are doing great.
