Need bees extracted or trapped out of home

Recommended Posts

Guest Jfugal

I live in Philomont. Bees have taken up residence in a column wrap on our front porch. The vent holes have plastic vents and after 15 years the vents became brittle and fell apart. Bees moved in before I noticed the vent problem. Honeybees have now been living in the column for 2 years. We’re re-wrapping the posts this year and so want to have the bees moved. If you’re a beekeeper that’s interested in taking these bees please email me: jfugal@mac.com

Can you post a picture(s) of what this looks like?  It would help estimating the effort.

So once again the bees found themselves in a place they don't belong...a front porch column.  And once again Kristina forwarded my name to the homeowners!   I was SSOOOO tempted just to plug the vent holes they were using and take the entire column back to my bee yard and stand it up next to my other colonies but instead I did the standard removal.
