Golf Course – New Hazard in the Rough! (Video in link!)

The City of Allen owns a golf course – and it was reported by a patron that honeybees were in a knothole of a tree on the 14th hole.

The facilities manager was concerned both for the safety of their customers (the public) as well as having a humane and live removal of the honeybees […]

Stargate Bees – Downed Tree Limb

This property houses a Stargate portal to an inter-dimensional bee hive located in a tree limb that fell from it’s host tree last summer.

The rotted section of limb fooled me at first (as this WAS performed on April 1 !) – and the bees were ABOVE the knothole, instead of below it.

Seeking Farmers for Pollination of Nectar Crops

Actively seeking farmers and/or landowners for the 2017 crop season.  North and East Texas preferred – however will travel Texas if the crop is right.

Honeybees brought in will provide pollination services for the farmer to make sure his fruits/seeds have a full “set” to the blooms.  These blooms also have nectar flow for benefit […]

Valentines Eve – Joist Space Removal

The homeowners had purchased this home last year, right about the time I’d estimate that the bees moved in (based on the comb color and condition), however the home itself tells a story about bees occupying the space in years past – based on the residue and remnants from wax moth in the space.

During […]

Tawakoni Water Meter Bees

This homeowner had bees move into the water meter last year.  Concerned for the safety of the water meter readers – he called to have the bees removed.

What do bees do in the winter?

During the cold months, one of the more common questions I am asked about is:  “What do the bees do in the winter?”.

The short answer is that they “sit in cluster” to maintain enough heat to ensure the survival of the colony.  It is extremely important that the bees have enough food brought in […]
