    Hi there,

    I’m posting on behalf of a friend who has a swarm in the wall of her house in Mt. Washington. It’s a little tricky because it’s high up but her neighbors have great ladders that would reach. This is probably best done as a trap out.

    If anyone wants to take this on and has a need for the hive, it would be much appreciated! This is a lovely woman who really wants to protect the bees and relocate the hive.

    Let me know if you’re interested and I will give you the details.

    A swarm ?


    An established hive ? With drawn comb, brood comb, honey comb ? That is by definition a cut out, and potential damage caused in cutting out the comb and sealing up the entrance. This becomes a job, and has liability from the home owner against the do gooder beekeeper potentially.

    Be careful what you are getting yourselves into.

    Make it very clear to the wonderful nice homeowner as to who is going to be in charge of repairing damage done to her house as a result of the bees taking up residence and the beekeeper having to gain access in order to evict the bees and collect the bees and the comb and relocate the bees and prevent more bees from just coming back.
