    This was a complete accident... I was inspecting and adding bars to the hive area and stopped paying attention for second and broke the comb off the top bar. It them kind of crumbled into the bottom of the hive. I ran to the house grabbed a bucket and then reached into the hive with both hands to remove the 15 lb block of capped comb , complete with hundreds of PO'd girls!! I finished up my work and closed up the hive. They spent the rest of the day picking up after my mess! ;0) Later that day I picked out every single living bee from the bucket by hand! I set them outside and they cleaned each other off, dried themselves and proceeded on their way. I saved over hundred of my girls.... I recognize that that's little nuts... but I'm cool with that. I LOVE MY GIRLS! :0)
