I remove honey bees out of two round wooden columns in this video. One of the colonies filled the entire column with comb & bees.
The homeowner had a carpenter do a lot of work on several of his columns including these two.
The first column had about 35-40 countersunk stainless screws that took me about an hour & a half to remove.
The bees weren't that happy but they weren't that bad either.
This job was done on two separate days, about a week apart, if that. There was a delay in doing the second one due to Hurricane Sally (In the video I say hurricane Sandy, my bad) coming close to New Orleans but we dodged a bullet thank goodness for that!
