It’s funny what people think will make bees leave an area. These people had bees in the water valve box. They didn’t know they had them until they trimmed the trees/bushes in the area. They were able to get the lid up without getting stung. Then they put the stick under the lid so the bees would leave. When they didn’t they called me. It was a small swarm that was starting to make itself home in the box. Once I shook them into the nuc they all left the valve box and came home with me.
