Sometimes tree cutting services will contact me in order to remove bees so they can cut down a tree. This was a downed tree that needed immediate attention. The bees were saved and the tree cutters could then get to work the next day.

Watching bee cut outs and swarm captures on YouTube has become a bit of an addiction lately.

It absolutely fascinates me Smile

You are welcome, we just don't do timber frame builds like you have, over here in the UK, nor do we have the same number of mobile homes, so the cut outs we do get are often a lot more complicated.

Also as it's once again pouring with rain here today, we definitely don't get the Florida weather! I had to put food on for one of my colonies yesterday as they are lovely calm bees and the Queen (one of last years and very dark) is laying really well but they were nearly dry!

We had a week of really hot weather about a month ago and I had to split them to stop them from swarming but then the weather turned it's not really stopped raining since!

Thank you once again for taking the time to film the removals

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
