Ok, old by American standards, lol.

But the hive was old, that's for sure.

This was one of my most challenging removals, mostly due to having to put this house back together in a bee suit:

Hi Pat

Always fascinating watching your removals. Great photography too. Its amazing how many removals you do. Wish I was in a position to do the same here but few hives about. Pleased to say I'm going into winter with 5 hives, all doing well. Bees were taking advantage of the dry warm day here after a few days of coolish wet weather. Autumn has definitely arrived here. I noticed you had some bad weather too lately , hope your own bees are doing well.

thanks for sharing these videos with us.

I'm very flattered you follow my videos as you do.

And yes, the bees came through that bad weather unscathed. In fact, we've had so much rain late in the summer that the fall flow should be wonderful. It's much needed because the dearth/hive beetle season was brutal.

Please post pictures of the hives you will be over-wintering!!!

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
