Got a call today from a local company, they had removed a tree and discovered a Bee Hive inside it. They wanted to pour petrol on it and kill them; hopefully we can find the Queen and remove the colony to a hive box.
We have never removed an established wild hive, so not so sure if this will be successful or not. We are going to try over the next couple of days to remove it.
We have picked up a swarm before, but not a wild hive the comb looks pretty white, so I don’t think the Bees have been in the tree that long.
Hopefully we can save these Bees.
Anyone got any tips, please leave comments.
