chemical-free, non-toxic bee removal and rescue | native beehive set up and maintanance

A Great Bee Rescue

We did an awesome bee rescue last week out at a home in Chatsworth. These bees had been living inside the plumbing access panel of the house for over a year. When we opened it up we found multiple layers of comb and a bunch of buzzing bees. We used the smoker to calm the bees and gently removed all the layers of comb and fit them into the new bee box frames. The bees are now relocated into two bee boxes on the property and are doing very well.

Here’s the access panel where the bees got in.

lots of bees, honey and honeycomb in that little space!
