Australian beekeeper Paul Wood removed a treasure trove of honeycombs in the form of a massive bee hive hidden in a woman's home in suburban Brisbane, Australia.
Wood removed the 50kg of honeycomb, including the 60,000-bee population of the ten-month-old hive on Saturday at the behest of the house's owner and transplanted them into what he refers to as a "free range hive" in his backyard.
His video of his removal of the massive hive and its succulent honeycombs from the structure's ceiling went viral on social media.
"[The owner] wasn't disturbed by them at all, she was very comfortable with the bees in her house," said Wood, owner of Brisbane Backyard Bees. "But she realised they probably should be moved."
Wood and his colleague gently vacuumed the bees into a special box for transportation and removed the honeycombs, straining the honey into jars.
While the bees remain in a temporary hive in Wood's backyard, he says they will eventually be sent to beekeeping enthusiasts in Brisbane.
