  1. Swarms, Trap-outs, and Cut-outs
    My wife recently found a tree with honey bees on our property. I expect it came from a hive that swarmed a few weeks ago. (this is my first season) I will leave the bees to manage for themselves this season, and see if the overwinter successfully. If so, then perhaps I can use this tree to trap...
  2. Swarms, Trap-outs, and Cut-outs
    Got a call about three weeks ago concerning bees in a Hickory Tree about 5 blocks from my house. The landlord had just paid a pest control company to do a big cutout of his brick facade to take care of a colony in his duplex. Afterwards, they noticed this about 13 feet up in a hickory tree...

    So, my boss moved into this house with bees. I have done one cutout in the soffit of a house and the bees absconded the next day. I have three hives that are doing well. I am a first year beek. The bees are entering the house between the brick and siding in an 8 inch opening about 10 ft up...

An owner has bees in his wall, they were in the lower floor garage ceiling space but tried a cutout from the garage and the main hive...

    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...
  7. Swarms, Trap-outs, and Cut-outs
    I am on the start of my third week of a screened-cone style trap-out on an old house nearby. It has gone very well, and I have gotten two hives boxes of bees from the house. The amount of bees exiting the cone has dropped to only a few every once in a while. The bees have been in the wall of...
