    Yes what a suprise people attacked the bees. I wounder how often that happens? So how do i help them it looked like it would have been a football but now what is living is is about the size of a softball. It was in someones water meter box and he poured 5 gallons of soapy water on them they act is if they have a queen now that i have them in a hive. They had 3 pieces of about 5 inch long and 4 inch wide comb but now i dont think they can care for all of it as it has mostly eggs. What could I do to help them. I am feeding them. Should I expect more to die from this attack it happened yesterday I got the call today and removed about an hour ago.

    Keep the entrance small and feed feed feed. Good for you for getting them. If you had established hives you could give them a frame of capped due to hatch brood with nurse bees, but you don't. Do your best, it's all you can do.
