Marvellous video. Looked extremely awkward to get into that one. As you said. good job they didn't get back any further into that cavity. HM might never have been found. Well done for spotting her.

Thanks, Bridget. Very Happy

Usually it's a process of elimination. Also, there are only so many places she can be. I usually search for clusters around the general vicinity in case she flew off a short distance. Sometimes I vacuum her without ever seeing her and find her a day or two later. She also stands out like a sore thumb to me at this point.

I rubber band them into a frame and usually release them back into the general population a day or two later. She usually walks out of the clip and calmly walks right into the hive with no incident.

The bees were removed just at the right time.

If they would have been allowed to continue building for any length
of time, the customer and removalist would have a nightmare on their hands.
