    Amazing creatures. I've got 4 top bar hives and they keep their hive clean, but I didn't know they were that strong.

    What an amassing show of determination to remove a foreign object from his bee hole. Probably a hive hidden in the wall behind.

    Maybe the question should be how did someone just happen video the event. did they just happen by and see a bee busy trying to extricate a nail from the wall or had they seen a bee go into a hole in the brick then placed a roofing nail in the hole only to pass by later to find the hole devoid of the nail or had they just decided to put a nail in a hole without fore knowledge of any bees,and just decided to put a nail in the hole only to later see that it had been removed. Then being the curious sort set up a stationary camera in hopes to learn how the nail was being removed?

    I think it could be cladding, not bricks.

    Looked to me like he found a bee hole and stuck a nail in it to see what the bee would do.

    My best guess is that someone saw a bee entering/exiting from the hole, and stuck a nail in there to plug up the hole. Then somewhere in there they saw the nail removed, and decided to point a camera at it.

    Either that, or this bee's wife told him that he'd never be able to remove that nail.

    Next time use glue. If the bee gets that out, I’d want to see it!
