My friend in Santa Monica decided that he wanted to take advantage of the legalization of bees and add a hive to his yard. He bought all of the hive gear and then I got a call from him that he found some bees he wanted to rescue.

The suspected location.

What they found underneath.

Jim and Josh pull out comb.

The bees' new home.

The bees were in the roof eaves of a 2-story apartment building. With permission from the landlord, we cut the fascia board off to get a look at the hive. We removed the bees and took them to their new home in Santa Monica.
