Los Altos Bees Removed From Construction Site

After the swarm call on Monday we headed back to Los Altos for a quick cutout. We were told that the bees arrived last Friday. These swarms sure can build quickly as when we arrived on Monday they have built 4 good sized comb already. Not sure why they chose this exposed location.

We had to wear hard hats at the construction site.

My dad removing the bees using the bee vac.

A nice comb section. Just pollen and honey. No eggs yet.

I saw the queen once we started vacuuming the bees. I went to catch her, thought she went into the queen catcher but I guess I missed. We finally found her again at the very end.

Thanks Craig for calling us to save the honeybees!
