Well ... here they are. After 5 hours of labor, all comb was removed, all brood was salvaged and even got some honey salvaged with the deal. There is honey rot in the wood ... and the home owner was so happy with our results and professionalism, he wants us to now tear out the bay window, and replace everything behind it if his home owners insurance will cover it. So he's looking at that aspect ... and we're seeing the beneficial features of a job well done.
 

Trim board pulled back to reveal the entrance the honey bees had been using.
 
 
Comb shot towards the front ...
 
 

Comb shot toward the back of the void. The comb actually makes a 90 degree turn and goes down into the void.
 
 
After all comb was removed ...
 
 
Extra comb ...
 
 
Left behind swarm after sealing and closure of the void and entrance ...
 
 
Extra hive left behind in close proximity to original hive entrance, to be monitored over the next couple weeks to remove all straggler bees ....

The job is not finished out yet ... just all completely sealed up. We still need to go back to trim & paint, which could not be done the day of the removal, because it began storming that day. We certainly try to instill in our employees, that every job, regardless of how big or small ... begins and ends with quality in mind.

I will try to get some followuip and finished photo's up when we are completely done with this job.

Have the bees actually caused the wood to rot there? It seems strange that they'd choose such a damp spot to settle in.

I believe they might have caused wood to rot, since where it was rotten was completely saturated with honey. However, I was told that it was unlikely that they caused it.
