    If you’re totally new to beekeeping, starting with bees is a tough way to go—for you and for them. It would be best to take this season to learn more about bees and get some hands-on mentoring at HoneyLove before you get your own bees next spring. They’ll wait. In the meantime, you can check the “rescue bees” page on the HoneyLove website to find a reputable bee rescuer near you.

    Hard to tell without someone else doing an inspection with you and going over your notes. Do you need a mentor to come for a visit? What area are you in?

    Please have him go to the “Rescue Bees” section of the HoneyLove website for removal resources. As a homeowner, he really should have a professional do it—not a hobbyist—for safety and insurance purposes.

    Hey Christy! A gardener there contacted me about it and I offered to move it to the HoneyLove Sanctuary. Let me know if this conflicts with info you already have. If anyone wants to learn how to do a small cutout, email me!

    David! I notice you haven’t yet responded to the invite to join the HoneyLove volunteer page on Facebook. Will you be able to help out at National Honey Bee Day on August 18?

    It’s quite likely they are not honey bee but are hornets, yellowjackets, etc. This link should help: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Characteristics_of_common_wasps_and_bees
