Default Killing wasp and bees in Woodson

2nd bee hive we've taken out of my camper. First one was Africanized don't know about this one accidental got them with wasp spray before I knew they were there. I called the same guy and he came out this morning and removed it. This one was smaller than the one last year.

The wasps have been terrible out there this year for some reason. Tired of getting stung by those jokers.

Not much honey only one comb had honey and it was about a 1/2 quart. He said he didn't think they would make it if we had a cold winter because there was no pollen in the hive. He was also saying the Africanized bees produce more honey but hey use it for the brood so you usually don't get any honey from their hives. If you look at the picture all the dark spots on the combs are brood cells that already hatched. It was interesting learning about how bees operate and build their hives. But I'm glad they are gone. If anyone around the Graham area needs this guys number PM me I'll get it to you.
