LA Backwards Beekeeper Roxana sends along this story (cross-posted from her blog):
On Thursday, February 24th, Sherri in Woodland Hills called the Bee Rescue Hotline about a hive she had in her garage roof. Since this was in my neck of the woods I called Sherri and went over to inspect the situation.
The bees were located in the corner of an old wooden garage/barn, which was approximately 14 feet in the air. We assumed the bees had made their hive under the boards. The job looked a bit out of my range so I asked Maurice, one of the master mentors in the bee club, to help out. Once Maurice had gotten the A-OK from the property owners we were ready to get the job done.
