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 […]

Late September Open Feeding of Bees

A short film of the bees yard activity when open feeding honeybees.  Honey from structural removals is fed back to the honeybees.  This helps ensure that each hive in the apiary has enough food stores to make it through the winter.  When there is no natural nectar flow, open feeding can be used to make […]

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 […]

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.

 

Smoking Out Bee Mites (USDA Article)

The following article was forwarded to me from a friend.    It indicates that at least 20 years ago, research was being done to determine ways to get rid of the varroa mites.  We now have other treatments available to us to use.  And some beekeepers use methods that range from “apicentric” to the other end […]

Honeybee Out-Yard

A friend of mine has inquired several times about having hives put on their land – both for adding to the biodiversity of the land and flora, but also for the State Agriculture Exemption that includes having honeybees as livestock.

Every county can decide how many hives per acre are required, and the tax exemption […]

Somewhere Over the Bedroom

Honeybees moved into this space over a bedroom (in the joist space between floors) about a month and a half ago.

The bees were not a problem for the homeowner, however, they were concerned for the safety of their dogs – so called to have the bees removed.

The bees are entering at the junction […]

Water Valve Box – Honeybee removal

According to the homeowner, honeybees have occupied this water valve box for the last 2-3 years.  The comb was dark, and a bit tough to cut – so that supports the time-frame that she estimated.

The valve box was about 18″ deep into the ground, so the comb was DEEP.  The queen looks to be […]
