You should definitely contact a beekeeper to remove that (if you need it removed) Feral bees like that are great to put into hives.

Currently, the hive is solid bees and the comb is full of larvae and honey. The bees are really active at Texas Canyon with all the wildflowers. There have been numerous reports of bee stings by those frequenting Texas Canyon. Pack the Benadryl/EPI pen.

True men know that the bee hive is a required hold on that route.

According to Spider Savage there were no bee colonies/hives in proximity to the climbing formations at Texas Canyon when he arrived in 1997, but now there are colonies in numerous locations. So be carefully out there.

That wonderful honeycomb has been seriously damaged by someone. The lower ribs are now fractured, broken, and swaying in the wind. Also, judging from the quantity of nails accumulated at the base someone has been making a serious effort to "smoke" the bees out by burning pallets and brush under the beehive. Sad.

The hills are alive with the sound of bees and the beehive is really busy.
