I was scanning a home during a normal inspection and the bright spot on the right caught my eye. I took a closer look with a zoom camera lens and found the nonpaying tenants to the left.
They were up high enough that I may have missed them without the IR
They had not caused any damage that I could find, so an exterminator was called. Always call a professional to deal with bees. The sting factor is one thing but there are special rules in many states to deal with honey bees.
