We just bought an infrared camera that attaches to the phone.  This is the first time we used it in a removal. The first photo is of the bees in the wall.  The second photo is after we removed them.  We removed the bees from a “pole house.” That is a house built on poles to keep them off the ground because of flood or on a hill.  We didn’t want to walk up the steps over and over so we used a rope and bucket to get stuff up and down.  It worked fine!  Sometimes when we do a removal the people are very pleasant. The people we helped were so nice and pleasant.  The space we had to work with was tight! WE couldn’t even get the ladder in, so we had to lean over to get them.  Sy and John did all the work.  The last picture is of the completed job.
