Big bee colony in the wall

From the outside this was a very active colony of bees living inside a wall of an older house. The thermal camera picked them right up and enabled a very precise opening of the sheet rock to expose the colony taking up two stud bays.

A few hours later and all the bees had been collected alive and the comb saved to be moved into a hive box.
