Back in January I got a call from a lady down the road saying she has a swarm of bees on the outside of her garage wall. I went down late that evening to drop them into a box but found they were already inside the wall.
I was given permission to remove the internal wall so I went back a few days later with some tools and got to work.

Being my first cut out I started panicking when I couldn't find the queen  Undecided I could see the bees kept going higher and higher in the wall and I was worried they would go into the ceiling. Unfortunately we stopped recording at this point as we madly pulled down some more of the wall. Luckily we did end up finding the queen  cool

Fantastic, Shane!!!  Those are some calm bees you have there!  Impressed with your confidence and smoothness in handling them, too.  Nice job, thanks for posting the video!!!

Thanks James.

Ed these are the calmest bees I have ever seen! They just didn't seem to care what I did with them. I'm looking forward to working with them in the future  Smiley

Good job, Mate.

Wow, this is only your first removal? You looked like a pro Shane!

Love those bees too, very healthy looking & great disposition. I would guess they had been there working on one season.

Fantastic job & great video!

Well done man!

What's true is the corks keep the flies away from the bee's face.
Iddee, there are mozzies up there in the Territory where the flies can be thick too, that slip straight through mozzie netting.  You have to put two layers up and some blighters still squeeze through.

Iddee, The corks do help with the mozzies but some still get you. I used to do a bit of fishing in mozzie infested areas and the ol corks always helped a bit.
