The Blue Box

I was told the bees were in a blue box in the carport. The “Blue Box” was a 5 foot tall by 4 foot sturdy wooden box. It was filled completely with stuff. The bees had gotten in and went to the bottom to start to build.  I had to take everything out. Some of the boxes inside had bees attached to them, so that was the easy part.  Then I had to turn the thing on its side, crawl in and scoop the bees.  When I was don’t with that I had a 5 gallon bucket half full of bees.  I waited for about 10 minutes for the bees to gather around the bucket, then I put a sheet over them and took them home.
