Island Bees

You have got to be kidding!

We went out to this house in July last year, but for some reason they didn’t want to do the removal. Then I guess the bees became such a problem that the really decided call me. When we got there and went to look where we were going set up we noticed that the hive in the wall wall was swarming! They flew to a mango tree about 30 feet away, the problem was that they were about 40 feet up. I would have loved to grab them and put them in the nuc but they were just too high. There was a lot of honey in the hive and it made a mess. Then the expanding foam wouldn’t work, so I had to punch a hole in the bottom. That made a mess in the wall. All in all it took us about an hour longer than we expected. When we went back we had to scoop bees in the box since there was no queen to attract them.
