cutout from a small cabinet

Funny that bees also seem to like larger enclosures.
This small cabinet would be harder to defend and to regulate temperature would also be harder than a small cavity.
Anyway, they liked it and setup camp.
The home owners where not afraid but decided it wasn't the best place for them.
I came with an extra suit

Why was she holding a knife here ? :-)

Preparing the frames with rubber bands to get the comb into.

I put the first layer of comb into a frame

The rest was done by her!

She is cutting out another layer of comb

Last piece of comb will be put into a frame.

These were very docile, dark colored bees.
I hope these bees like their new home and will next year become a big hive.
