Jerry Borger with the New River Valley Beekeepers Association on Monday removed honeybees from the home they'd built about 30 feet off the ground on the side of the building that houses Fortunato in downtown Roanoke. Borger will bring the bees to his bee yard, or apiary, in Christiansburg. He says the hive has about 30,000 bees and is six weeks to three months old. Another comb was found in the same location two years ago.
