The colony was entering its third season
Below right: the nest entrance over the facia board and under the slates behind the gutter
Below: a piece of soffit board removed; on the right a closeup of bottoms of the the combs
After the comb was removed while taking the bees into the bee vac, a residual cluster of bees was spotted further up under the slates. This was also taken into the bee vac. The resulting artificial swarm was given away.
