Removing bees from an overhang.

The bees were in a roof overhang by the front door of this residence. They were entering through a gap in the stucco where the roof met the main wall of the residence.

Once the soffit was removed the nest was visible.

After the bees and comb were removed the place where the comb was attached was coated with a repellent. The soffit was replaced and the hole the bees were using was repaired.
First a lath backup was placed in the hole. Then the hole was repaired with stucco mortar to keep future bees from gaining access to the area.
