Live Honey Bee Removal - Residential Area, South East San Antonio

We were called in to remove and relocate this hive of honey bees that had been living under a large tree beneath some lumber that was covering a dozen or so cinder blocks in the client's backyard for over a year. The client was unaware of the size or the possible danger of the hive, which turned out to be the "Africanized" strain of bees. These are a few of the photos taken on the scene during the removal process.

To relocate the bees alive, we carefully removed the comb in sections, including the brood and the honey and place the sections of comb in special frames that fit into a wooden box for transport. A good deal of worker bees are crawling around on the comb and get a ride into the box as the comb is placed in the frames. Many additional worker bees form clusters around the hive area, in holes and on the outside of the concrete blocks. These are scooped up by hand and poured onto the frames or gently brushed in with a soft broom.

The remainder of the bees that return from foraging during this process begin to cluster around the outside of the box. We give them a few hours to gather and then scoop them into the box to be moved with the rest of the colony.  Once the bulk of the bees are contained, the box is closed and the entire colony is relocated to our safe and eco friendly bee yard where they will join other hives and do what bees like to do, collect pollen and raise their young.
