    Bees that are flying and foraging are unlikely to be diseased.
    I don't know sorry, we were in the garden talking about the bees one day, I think it was the year before last when we suspected was a hive inside one of our sheds, her husband is the church warden so I didn't query it.

    I shouldn't think you will have to pay Giz. A beekeeper will probably be glad of another colony of bees. It should be fairly easy for them to remove them if they are on a fence.

    the beekeeper came out and removed them kept us entertained for a good idea - my OH even donned the spare kit and helped out as I took pictures

    the guy lives less than a mile away (over the fields about 200m) and was happy to have them - as I am part of a group looking at making the area they were found a good place for wildlife he has asked bout installing a few hives in the cordoned off areas - and even gave advise on what wild flowers we should be planting
