Walking to the tree I noticed this bee foraging... I figured I would snap a pic real fast.
All of our stuff was loaded onto a trailer to be brought into the woods to get the bees.
The tree was quite large. The gentleman would not go anywhere near it without my spare suit on.
We guessed at where the bees were and where the comb went... The bees were all in the other half like we anticipated and this was all empty comb with some honey reserves still in it.
I cut out some brood and pollen and honey and placed it in a hive body. I brushed and smoked the bees down into it. We found the queen and made 100% sure she made it into the hive. I put the hive there to get the returning bees. I am comming back tomorrow night to move the hive to the guys house.
