All of the bees, including the queen were safely taken to a local farm.

All of them? What about the one who was out scouting for flowers a half mile away and came back to find her house was gone?

I'm an amateur bee-keeper who has helped a contractor-friend (who also has more experience keeping bees) with removing a hive from a house. He calls it a 'cut-out' and it was pretty fun. After cutting open the wall, he lashes the comb into wooden frames and then stores them in a 'Langstroth' wooden hive chamber. The returning bees are isolated using a hand-made vacuum system into a mesh chamber until they can all be combined together back into the new hive at the end of the job. The wall is repaired and he comes back the next day to gather any remaining bees who are looking for the opening. He recently borrowed my thermal camera (Seek), so I hope he gets some of the same pictures!

A couple weeks ago my wife noticed a swarm of bees in the tree in our yard.  We found some local beekeepers who came by and collected them.  Made for an interesting Sunday morning.
