When I got the call for this removal the woman said they were in her mailbox. I was thinking that they were IN the mailbox. They were in the enclosure around the mailbox. I figured the shingles on the outside would come off and I would have access to the bees. Boy was I wrong. This thing was really built well. I did my best to remove the plywood panel in the front, then after removing what bees I could I saw I was going to have to remove the back panel. When I did that the top came off also. At least it all stayed together. The person who owned the house is architect. When I asked her what she had done that we might know she said she had done the PBS building at Sand Island and Nimitz. It is a beautiful building.
