Spring has sprung
« on: February 17, 2016, 03:46:21 pm »
Looks like I will be busy this weekend....Homeowner hadn't been in this shed for 5 months and got a surprise...just glad they hadn't attached to the door or it could have been ugly when he opened it. Photos of the removal will follow  :cool:

For the record this removal was a pain in the ass...the angle was horrible with the comb base being too high while lying on the ground but too low to tackle from a chair or bucket....they were also pissy as hell and clustered in the back of the cabinet. With the homeowner not wanting me to damage the cabinet it was harder than it needed to be......probably the last time I will ever gloat to myself "this is going to be easy!!!" LOL

And for the record......my tagline in the signature is true. I thought these girls were going to be mean as hell judging by how they acted during the removal.... but ever since I got them into a real hive and down in the Keys...changes in latitudes have in fact changed their attitudes and they seem to be much nicer than expected ;-)
