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.

This was 2 weeks ago, and I am happy to report that the bees are doing well after their removal from the water meter, and are […]

Royal Bees….

Royalty?  No…  These bees were highly aggressive when it was time to remove them from their home.  At the peak of a 2nd floor soffit – protected from the sun by a high tree canopy.

The comb went about 2 feet over the living space of the house – as well as over […]

Scene:  In October of 2015, the homeowner observed bees swarming, and moving into a […]

Wastewater Treatment Plant Bees

This North Texas Municipal Water District wastewater treatment plant has had bees in the past.  This year – they have them again.  From the look of the comb, these bees have occupied this space right at a month to 6 weeks.  The queen was a bright orange color, and easy to spot.

 

Another Brick In the Wall

Luckily, these bees have only been in this home for about 2 months.  The homeowner was trying to do yard work – and was getting tagged occasionally by bees – so his wife made sure that he called a beekeeper to do a live removal (as opposed to having them exterminated).

They were entering […]

Cliff-side Bees

Bees have lived in this soffit for a short amount of time.  The property was being sold, and the new buyers wanted the bees to be removed as a part of their purchase agreement.

While the bees were in a 1st floor soffit – it was a high soffit… and a precarious drop below […]

Way up there!

The homeowner had only noticed these bees over the last few weeks – up near the 2nd floor soffit.  At first, we thought they were in the wall – as that portion of the roof DOES get sunshine – but upon checking – the bees were, indeed, in the soffit (as usual!).  The comb was […]
