Have a wild beehive or swarm in your backyard?  Whom are you going to call?  Emma, David, and Neville from the Woodend Bee-Friendly Society were called out today to move a wild hive of bees in a woodbox in Sunbury today.  As you can see from the photos the beehive was quite large and vigorous with lots and lots of lovely honeycomb.  Hopefully we have successfully given the bees a new home in Riddells Creek.

Prising the woodbox lid open. OMG there are a lot of bees in there.

Best use of a dust pan that I can think of.
