HUGE swarm cutout

I got a call from a guy who had bees that moved into his front porch awning. They were about 12' up and he wanted to have them removed.

 Above is the hole they were using to make a hive inside the porch covering.

 Most of my tools. I am missing my sawzall and my drill and hole bits.

The bees were massed in a 5 gallon bucket mass just to the right under the flooring. I used my beevac from ground level to suck them all up. I a, pretty sure I got the queen. In all I got 3 medium supers worth of bees! I will have to go see if they like their new home on Sunday.
