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 #3 thermal image from inside
Hive #6 ( thermal image only) Front right side corner of the house
Hive #7 and #8. One above and one on the second story soffit.
From outside. Bees are behind the chimney.
From inside. A good sized hive!
Hive #14 (Could be the same as Hive #11?)
