They are definitely bees as the hive is waxy and it looks like there is honey seeping through the wall that they're in. Thank you for your feedback everyone, I'll try to get a good photo when I go back for work tomorrow.
Hey Friends, I'm not a part of the beekeeping community, however, I would like to reach out for some info on how to help protect our little winged friends. I'm currently working on a demolition site in Murupara, and during asbestos removal we came across an active hive within one of the walls, it's about 600mm x 1600mm in size. I am wondering if there is any way that we could relocate their home before the building it's in is demolished this week. Any info would be appreciated. Bentley
