Here are a few photos of my removing a colony of honey bees from a garden in London. They swarmed into a pine tree and the home owners were both amazed and alarmed! The garden was a typical small London terrace house garden and not suitable for 50,000 + bees! So with a little smoke and balancing on a ladder I was able to coax the bees into a box.
These bees are doing well and growing in size. I believe they will be strong enough to make it through the winter and will be in a position to gather honey for us in the spring.
