Bee Mine


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.
