Photo of Bee Hive Had To Be Saved

I was called by a lady that was having a rotted pecan tree cut down to try to save the bee hive in it. I went and closed off the two entrance holes in the tree so it could be cut down without too many bees flying around on the workers. After the tree was cut down we cut above and below the approximate size of the nest and I put the log in the back of my truck and brought it home and placed it in my bee yard. They seem to be doing very well since I placed them in my bee yard. There are a large number of bees in the tree stump and I will wait till the spring to extract them from the stump and place them in a ten frame hive body. I hated to see them just destroyed when I could save them.
