Historic Mansion In Portola Valley With 15 Active Bee Hives – Bee Removal

A fellow bee remover in the area contacted me to see if I can help locate some hives in a historic building in Portola Valley with my thermal imager. He told me it was only seven colonies, he removed two already, but when I showed up I counted a total of 13 active hives that still need to be removed. I think this is a record, at least in my books, for the most bee colonies in a single building. Here we go with the pictures and thermal images.

Hive #1

Hive #2

Hive #3

From inside. A good sized hive!
