Shed Bees – Carrollton

The homeowner noticed bees entering and exiting from the shed in the back yard the week before.   Since we were still several weeks prior to our swarm season – I suspected the bees * may * have been there a bit longer than the homeowner was aware of.

A nice queen was found, the bees […]

Brianna’s Bees – Swarm Catch from 2014 (video in link)

It’s been a while, however I found this gem of a video in the vault – that never got published.  A swarm arrived at this young lady’s home the night before.

Brianna was excited to learn about the bees, and had never experienced a swarm like this – she insisted on bravely scooping the bees […]

DIY Protein Patties / DIY Pollen Patties (video in link)

It is early January 2018, and several of the overwintering nucleus colonies (NUC) are needing a protein boost since there has been no blooms for the bees to visit since late fall.  Once the queen lays eggs, and the larvae hatch – they need a ready supply of protein for their growth and transformation from […]

Bee colony removal from downed tree on golf course

This bee removal was from a tree that had fallen in a golf course in a storm last week.

Metal Roof Bees (video in link)

This video really shows more of the opening process and then the closing up of the structure afterwards.  These bees have been in this space for a few months. The thermal camera was almost useless on the days I was trying to get a reading. The metal roof was hot, even on cloudy days. (I […]

SS Minnow – Boat Bees (video in link)

Bees have been in this boat for at least 2 years, according to the comb color, texture, etc. The comb wound up being quite a challenge to remove, as the fuel lines, steering cables, electrical lines, and more were all running through the rear space of this boat. The bees, however had a very good […]
