    My neighbor's father 'inherited' some hives with the property he bought. He wants them removed. I'd like to have a couple, but could use some help. He says whoever comes gets them can have them. My neighbor says he saw honey 'dripping' out of them and there were 'a bunch of hives' but he is afraid to go close enough to see anymore.

    If someone wants to come help me with them, I'd like a couple of hives and you could take the rest.

    James, the owner wants nothing to do with the hives. Not sure about a bill of sale. I'll ask my neighbor exactly where his dad lives, it is pretty close to us tho. We are about 30miles south of Taylor.

    I'm in San Antonio and can help with those hives. Send me an email on how to get ahold of you and we can set up a time to take a look at them.

    Sorry to leave this thread dangling. I didn't think to refresh it and didn't realize there were more replies.

    I need to run up and look at the hives in the next couple of days. Will get back to all responders ASAP.
    Thanks
