Ricardo’s cousin contacted him about removing a beehive from a piece of land in Leonidas Plaza where he was clearing brush. After an inspection, it appeared possible to capture the hive and transfer it to Ricardo’s farm.
The hive was located in a cement tube, which was partially buried in the dirt. Over the course of two days, we cleared the brush covering the hive, dug out the ends of the cement tube, and extracted the hive. The hive was transferred to a sealed bee box, and we delivered the box to Ricardo’s farm, where we have 3 other hives situated.
In the process, we were able to harvest 1 liter of honey.
