High wind, rain and a really bad storm was predicted for the day of this removal.  We had made the appointment about two months ago.  As the day approached we got worried. But it was a great day! It was overcast so it wasn’t blazing hot, there was a light breeze so it kept us fairly cool. Since it was overcast and had drizzled a bit earlier most of the girls were home.  They almost overflowed the nuc we were using.  There was also a large amount of small hive beetle.  One of the things that happens sometimes is that we find damage to the home. In this case it was water damage that had been there for some time. The owner wanted us to leave it open so the carpenter could get to it.
