Bumble Rescue II

I was working with someone today who's friend needed a bees nest removing from his store. I went along after 1900ish armed with my bee suit, a box and the camera. It was all very undramatic. As I cleared the bits and pieces from around the nest about 20 bees emerged. They were very loud, but none tried to sting me. I gave them a misting with the water spray and they went straight into the box. A quick scoop with a spade had the nest in the box and the lid was taped in place. There were about five bees flying about afterward but all in all it seemed to go ok.

They are now re-housed in a quiet corner of my garden :-)
