Glad it wasn't far.
To be fair, when I called the guy back after we got the message, he said that he wasn't sure that it was honey bees. When I asked him if it was waxy type of "honey comb" he said it was gray . . . so my immediate thought was wasps.
But my wife and I biked over anyway just to make sure.
It was a beautiful nest though . . . I think bald-faced hornets (a bit too dark to see them well and I didn't want to get to close because it was not easy to run away from the site as it was on an overgrown slope.
Oh well, thanks for the reply anyway.
