    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.
