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 […]

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.

The queen […]

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 […]

Late Season Removal

The homeowner has had bees in this house for at LEAST 3 years.  While they have not been a problem for the homeowner, they posed a potential problem for roofing crews who were to replace the roof.  Hammering and activity on the roof tends to occasionally upset bees that are just below the roofers.  😉

Strange Archetecture

This porch had a gap between the door, and the outer porch space/roof line.  It made for a strange balancing act while performing this removal.

Once I figured out my footing – it wasn’t bad at all.  The bees were accessed and removed – and the homeowner opted to perform his own repairs afterwards.

These bees are high!

High in the air, that is!

From the looks of the comb, these bees have been here for about a year – though there was not a LOT of comb, it was a good tan/brown color – indicating it had been here at least through several seasons.

The comb and bees were […]

Ross’s Bees

Bees were entering the balcony wall of this condo – and needed to be removed.  The walls are appx. 1″ thick cement/stucco – so I had to use a special blade to open the wall to access the comb.

Once their void-space was opened – these bees were VERY docile.

After the […]

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 […]

Been there a little longer than anticipated….

One of the first questions I ask of a homeowner with bees is:  “How long have they been there?”.   Many times, the answer will be “I’m really not sure – maybe from last year or early this spring”.  And occasionally I’ll hear “They just moved in this week – come get them NOW!  It’s an […]
