I built my own bee vacuum today.  You Tube has everything on it.  I might give you a call if things don't go as planned.  I going to assist Kent and Jane Huisingh this weekend with another cut-out and we are going to try to get these also.  The big hive there has been there for atleast two years according to the owner.

Did you get it out - I can help if need be if you are in Alamogordo. Some of these bees are no joke and I have done quite a few removals.

They were flying in and out of the hive the whole time I was there.  It's hard to see them, but there had to be thousands of them up in the comb.

That is amazing! Where are the bees?

Comment by W.C. Arnold Jr. on March 5, 2014 at 6:56pm

The owner then mentioned that he had an issues with another big hive and wanted to just kill them.  I told him that I would remove them for him at no cost.  I was amazed with what I saw.  Remember I have no experience at this.  Trial by fire.

Sorry, I'm so late to get these pictures up.  The first picture doesn't show much but the bees are going up into the soffit, there is actually no telling how long they have been in there.

I called Victor and I am going to meet him at his property to look at the situation and take some pictures.

I will let everyone know how it turns out.
