Maybe bees like the airport because they fly, and jets fly. I know that is a silly idea. A contractor at the airport called and said they had bees in one of the wooden forms they use. He said they had been there for at least 3 months. What he didn’t tell me was how aggressive they were. In Hawaii we have a strain of bees called German. They are mean, and will attack in force and not leave you alone. I moved the wood forms and they started buzzing me, then when I flipped the last one, they came out in force. The whole 2 hours of the removal I had bees all around my head. I had to call my wife to come and help because I realized I couldn’t do this alone. When you are putting the comb into frames you need someone scooping bees and putting them into the hive when it is a large hive. I didn’t think they would be that big, and mean. I like Germans because they are survivors. They can thrive in a place other bees die. These will go out to the organic farm I think.
