A cutout from a factory in Kensington, with the combs conveniently located below a sort of loading dock. These bees are destined for a farm in Warragul, with my friends Janet and Rodger, so they came along for the ride. Went really well, found the queen and marked her.

Placed some of the surplus comb in a bucket inside the hive for the bees to clean up.  This shows how fast they can build comb – 24h work!
