I got a call today from a Camarillo tire store about bees in a "water box".
I initially came just with a NUC box, but this would never fit inside such a box.
So I went home and got a wooden medium size box.
When I returned the bees were no scared by the few puffs of smoke I gave them and most had returned on the comb. Which is what I wanted in order to catch the queen without a bee vac.
I was able to fill about 9.5 frames with comb.
At first they still wanted to go out. So the queen wasn't in there yet.
As a service to the customer I sealed the entrance of the lid so they wont have returning visitors in the future.
statistics: 1 nailed me (on my back) :-)
