This is the movie set for the D Rex enclosure at Koalua Ranch. We keep bees at the ranch and remove the bees they have for free. However, we didn’t expect this many in one place though. We were told there were “only” three in the structure. We got there and started looking around, the guy who helps us kept saying “oh, there’s another one.” I told him to close his eyes! There is a weed called Job’s tears, the bees love it! As we were walking around it sounded like we were in the middle of a hive. They were everywhere and you could hear them buzzing everywhere. We had to use the high lift to get to the bees. I don’t like heights, but I had to suck it up and get it done. There were 9 hive in the final count. We expect that we will be called back for more because of the way this thing was built. However, we did get 30 pounds of honey out of the hives.
I have said before I don’t like heights, so why do bees build in the highest places they can find? This is the set of Jurassic World D-Rex enclosure again. We have taken 3 hives from that set, and if they keep it up we will be taking more from it. This one required a lift to get to them. It is kind of hard to do the work when your hand won’t let go of the cage. I had a death grip on the railing and would not let go, so I had to get creative. We got them down, and they are doing well.
