    My neighbor, Nancy Hannickel discovered an established bee hive in her glazed flower pot today. She said there are several combs about 6″ wide. She wants someone to come rescue them and find them a new home. She does want the pot back. Please call her (she doesn’t have a cell phone, so don’t text): Home landline: 310-397-3784.

    Anyone responding to this post must understand the techniques of doing a cutout properly and carefully. This is not a project for a first time newbee and is more complex than a swarm, by far. Please get the guidance of a knowledgeable mentor before attempting this, or the colony could easily be damaged and die. This project is not for the homeowner to decide who is qualified, but for the prospective rescuer to do honest self-assessment.
