Wall honey bee colony removal

Post date: Mar 08, 2021 4:37:3 PM

This colony is about one month old and was in the wall of a backyard shed in nearby San Mateo. The thermal camera showed exactly where the bees were and that made it easy to open up the structure, vacuum out the bees, place the comb inside an empty hive box and successfully captured the queen. These are very peaceful bees and you should be a great colony to propagate.
