    This was a very chilly and windy day so I worked quickly to remove and re-locate the beehive into a 5 frame nuc box.

    I got a bee removal call yesterday to remove bees from a hood/duct system on the roof of a local McDonald's inside a Wal-Mart store. At first inspection, I failed to locate them, owever, we seem to have found them way down deep inside the ductwork - almost inaccessible. Seems like a cone-trap...

    I have received a call from a local golf course regarding some honeybees located in a tree trunk. They would like the bees removed from the tree, as they are bothering some of the golfers (and some of the golfers are bothering the bees :D). The bees are entering an opening which is barely big...
