A couple of days ago I did my first cut-out of the season, and my first job working with my newly built BeeVac.
This colony had setup shop in a cavity above the plasterboard in a bathroom ceiling sometime last summer. Their entrance was on the second story with tricky access, so I approached them from inside the house by removing sections of plaster.
The whole process took about 6 hours, extended by the confined space to work, and the queen playing a game of hide and seek.
I hope you enjoy the pictures of the process.
