Bees in a neighbours roof

Peter got a call from a neighbor that there were bees in her roof and he attempted to extract as much of the comb in one piece as possible, not an easy task. Here are some pics that I took when myself and Ruben went over...

Think Peter said the bees were only here about 6-8 weeks...

After most of the comb was removed to a brood box, a nucleus hive was put in its place to try and encourage the remaining bees into it...
