ventura shed bees
This one was a bit different.
We lifted the complete shed at an angle in order to get to the bees. that way we avoided having to cut the floor.

shed lifted on one side
4 feet long comb built between rafters.
The day after i put the comb into the boxed i went back. The landlord called me and said most bees had returned underneath the shed.
So I took a small show box, swiped all the bees in and dumped them in the wooden box with the frames/com.
Did that a couple of times. 4 hours when it got dark, all bees were in the wooden box.
Here they are locked up and ready for transport.
Remains of the comb on the ceiling/floor of the shed.
No more bees!
