It's always better to leisurely remove bees from a structure in the comfort of your own back yard.

Nice video of birdhouse removal. How many hives and nucs do you currently have Patrick? Do you ever get a brood break except if a hive swarms in Florida?

Thanks, ingo!

I have 20-some-odd hives and nucs at this point.

During the "winter" here in Florida, they slow down a bit. It doesn't stop, however.

But to be honest, I don't have varroa issues here. My only issue is small hive beetles.

Oh yes, and robbing is another issue. I attribute that to other hives in the neighborhood being robbed of their honey, so then they are left with sugar water and/or HFCS.

Anytime I have to do any sort of operation in my back yard which entails even the slightest drippage of honey, it's chaos. Especially in the dearth seasons.

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
