A beekeeper has told how he removed a hive from a house in the island that potentially had up to 10,000 bees.

No relation to the Laxey killer bees?
They sought it with thimbles, they sought it with care; They pursued it with forks and hope; They threatened its life with a railway-share; They charmed it with smiles and soap.
