Neoga External Hive

Terry Hopper and I had fun this afternoon removing an external hive from under the eave of an old 2-story house.  The bees were gentle and cooperative, but the challenge was that the hive was about 30 foot up!  However, with the assistance of a very long extension ladder and scaffolding we were able to remove this hive and place the bees in a nuc box at the farm.  Update: a couple of days later I checked on the bees and they had swarmed on me....oh well, hard come easy go!
