West Melbourne external bee nest

We've been seeing more bees in Melbourne and Brevard County that are suspected African Honey Bees (AHB), or Killer Bees. One of the characteristics of AHB is that they build these kind of external comb nests much, much more readily than their European Bee cousins.

Please, if you come across a bee nest similar to this, do not try to remove it yourself. This nest has maybe 30-50,000 Bees !!!, and you could get overwhelmed quite quickly.
