Skep Hive Transferred to a Langstroth Hive

These bees moved in to a “yard art” straw skep about a year ago.  The top 2/3 of the skep was capped honey, and the bottom 1/3 was brood comb.  The queen was found after all the comb had been removed and was placed in the commercial Langstroth hive.  The homeowner wanted to keep the bees in their yard – so I sold them the woodenware for the purpose, and labor for the transfer.
