    Honeybees are already facing a host of natural dangers nationwide, but a rule that allows beekeepers to remove nuisance bees from people's homes and keep them alive may be in jeopardy. Beekeeper Dennis Langlois makes 500 bee removals from homes a year, but he said he may not be able to do that...

    Hello, I am new to this forum and am looking to identify this type of bee that has decided to create a nest underneath my cedar clapboard siding (specifically where it meets the foundation of my home). Anyway, I am looking to see what kind of bee this is to safely remove it. Any help will be...

    I just recently finished my hives. Through word of mouth (somehow) people already know that I have them and have contacted me about removing hives/swarms for them. I'm currently looking at one hive in an old tree and one in the eve of a house about 15' up. I've never actually dealt with bees. I...

    Good afternoon guys, I am very very new to beekeeping, have read some, studied other times, and its been a long time coming. I've wanted to be involved in bee husbandry for many years and I'm really looking for some experienced advice. Currently I'm building two top bar hives on my 5 acres of...

    Hey guys, I'm looking for some advice. I'm currently busy with a removal of a very large colony. They built their hive in a pool pump box, and then out grew it and built the rest of the nest around the pump and all it's pipes and levers, etc. They have been there for 6 years! The pump itself is...

    . It was a very new arrival in between floors of an apartment building with minimal comb. I've done a number of removals for this same apartment complex over the past year-or-so. Each one has been a different building, so don't think they're moving into the same void. :no: :D Tomorrow I...

    A little over a week ago, I got a call from my beekeeping mentor letting me know he'd been told about a bee tree that had been cut down. He said he didn't have the room or the inclination to cut them out. Well, being a new beek and thinking "how bad could it be", I told him I was interested and...

    I live in Charleston, SC. We are home to thousands of very old and hollow oak trees that are perfect residence for honeybees. For people with bee issues in non-removable trees, I have had great success with trap outs and have successfully started 4 new hives from those jobs this summer. As...

    All, I've been a lurker for the past year learning. I've been overseas and will return to the Dallas/Fort Worth area on June 10th. I have a couple of TBHs I want to start on some land I have in eastern Oklahoma. I know it is a wee bit late in the season to begin a hive - I'll probably need to...

    I have a removal pending on some bees in a tree about 8 feet up. Their entrance is on the top - straight up, from a chopped off tree trunk. Any suggestions for a trap out. A standard trap-out does not look like it will work. I might have to rig up something with a hole in the bottom they can...

    Got called to do a removal in a tree yesterday. The tree was located in a burned over section of a pine forest in an old hollow oak on the side of a mountain about 8500' feet up. Very interesting, had to use a bulldozer and a backhoe to section off the hive, which was about 20 feet up - all on a...

    I'm in a suburban environment and I basically only have the room and the money for a single box. It'll be a langstroth, which indicates its price. I realize a colony doubles it population each year, but that brings up an issue: 1) How do I contain these newly born bees and prevent them from...

    Some days ago, the weather went fine and so I was called to remove two swarms. But it was on my way to the gym and I didn't get time to go to the apiary to take some empty boxes. So the swarms were put in two empty buckets and I placed the buckets on the seat of my car. Arriving at the gym...

    I've just received a call from a friend whose mother has a hive of bees take up residence in a cream can (pic of a similar one below) and they want them gone which I can understand. I'm just not too sure how to tackle this, being round it's not (in my opinion) lending itself easily to the...

    Good Day -- I had a removal from a fallen log scheduled for this morning. Usually I wouldn't do it as it is raining but wondered if anyone has done one in the rain. I was thinking of putting an easy up tent over my workspace and getting to work. Figure the bees will bee grumpy about it, but...
