Brisbane Backyard Bees apiarist Paul Wood had the job of removing the hive by chiselling it out bit by bit and without disturbing the bees.

According to www.stuff.co.nz, Wood said: ''It is always unbelievable to pull the sheeting back and see what a fantastic job these bees have done at building a hive.

''It is spectacular, always. It is a shame to pull it apart.''

He was given half of the honey and the other half was given back to the owners.
