    Default Removing Bees

    Hello all,
    Someone wants me to come and get some bees out of a window sill of an old house. I have no equipment to put them in and don't know where I would put them when I got them. Any suggestions??? ( I already know to tell them to call someone that does have equipment) Just looking for alternatives. Thanks in advance.

    Combine them with yours. Just make sure the queen does not survive the cutout.

    Not sure I understand why you would want to get involved if unable to save the cutout. If only for the income, then find a beek who'll help you hive the colony. Or consider throwing together a nuc - doesn't take much - even if it's a cardboard one and try to salvage the entire colony (queen included). If you really can't swing that, then find a fellow beek to split the stuff (and fee?) w/you .

    Thanks guys,
    Believe you me, I will post em. I have lots of common sense, so I will go and give it a look and if I think I need to call the "Big Boys" in, I will surely do it. I don't want anyone to get hurt because of stupidity, and in todays time, that seems to be going rampant. LOL.
