My dh and I got 3 separate colonies extracted this weekend.  One in a wall of a garage, one in the ceiling of same garage.  Another one from under a bay window in a frame house.  Still extracting honey today.  We were too worn out to finish yesterday!

Now, if I could just get them to stay in their boxes!  We had to catch a swarm 2 nights ago and then again this morning (different hives).  One hive got completely robbed, demolished, destroyed by feral bees.  I'm hoping the crushed peach leaves I rubbed all inside the hive box will encourage them to stay.
