Bee catcher

A friend emailed me to ask if I could remove a beehive from her parents' neighbor's yard. I gave the nice little old lady a call.

"Are you sure they're bees?"
"Oh yes! They're building honeycomb on the side of the charcoal grill!"
"Was the grill covered before?"
"Why, yes, it was! I took the cover off last week, but I didn't notice them then. Can you come save them?"

I figured it was a recent swarm. I tracked down a guy who needed bees, then went to scope out the hive, just to make sure. I had my suspicions.
At least her heart was in the right place.
