Below, I show you how my friend and I cut bees out of an invading hive in order to re-home them. Follow along to learn more about the process.
By the way: If you or someone you know notices an invasion of bees, the first, second, or third call you make should definitely not be to an exterminator. Bees are an essential to human health and our well-being.
What should you do? Contact a local beekeeper who will gladly cut out the hive and re-home them for you.
Don’t know where to find a local beekeeper? One of the best ways to find a beekeeper is to look at honey at your local grocery store; it is often made from local producers who include their contact information right on the label. You can also visit this website, or call your local Parks & Rec department for their recommendation. If none of those work, ask around! I’ll bet you’ll be surprised how many folks know of local beekeepers.
As always, Enjoy Beekeeping!
