A lady from church knew another woman whose house was infested with bees. A neighbor, my son, and I went to extract them. It went well. Removing a panel in the ceiling of a crawl space exposed a big, beautiful wild nest: Pretty neat to see the natural fins they create: Some parts were abandoned and empty, other areas (like toward the bottom of this picture) were quite populous: We broke/chiseled the comb out of the cavity, and I brought it home: And melted it down. I tried a double boiler: But it took so long that i stuck it all in the grill over indirect heat. Unfortunately part of it caught on fire and it was a big/long fire. Cool experience.
