I came across this on the net. Follow the pictures in order (I note from the make of can that it is either USA or OZ)

What a shame.

So what would you have done to relocate such a large colony? It would be an interesting challenge.

I'm guessing the idea would be to smoke them etc. then break off each comb and transfer each one to an empty frame, holding them in place with string/elastic -- or maybe 'shook swarm' them into a new box...

What do you think?

Better the neighbour you know. Of course, if the new neighbours arrive some time after your hives, then the timing would be just perfect. :)
Bee lucky.
