Last week as temperatures approached 100 degrees, an amber substance began seeping from a light fixture in my walk in closet. it was sticky, and smelled sweet.and my dogs took a liking to it. We had the hive removed by professional bee keepers.the biggest part of the hive had collapsed due to wax moth larvea infestation, and the majority of the honey & comb had fermented. The bee keeper estimated that at one time around 80,000 bees had used the hive. The queen wasn't present, and only about 15,000-20,000 bee's remained. They collect all of the bees, and whatever comb they could, and relocated them in a hive less than a mile from my house. They kept about 200 pounds of honey and comb, and plan to dilute it and feed back to the bees in the fall.
