Patrick, I can't criticise.... I have a Geordie accent!!
We can't all be like Phil and have a beautiful mellow south country tone!

It amazes me how people seem prepared to let you rip their homes apart to get some of these colonies out, although peeling back siding is a lot less destructive than cutting through roof structures or brick walls as you would need to do here, as most houses are much more solid construction than those you deal with. Trap out becomes the only viable option really although I try to persuade people to live with their bees if at all possible.

Thanks as always for posting your video Patrick. It is always helpful for people to see pictures and video of how these things are done, so that more people are able to carry out such procedures..... it seems to be an increasing problem of people complaining about bees in places they don't want them, so more people capable of dealing with them has to be a good thing for the bees.

Best wishes

Barbara, as I said in my post above, sorry for the delay in response.

I tell you what, it's rare that I get a trap-out that so easy. Usually I'm having to seal around pipes/conduit, etc. I'll take any break I can get...lol.

But yes, I have been doing mostly trap-outs lately because people really don't like having their walls smashed. They also know how detrimental it can be if they just poison them in the wall and leave that mess-of-a-big-batch-of-rotting-poison-and-bee-corpses/products.

Barbara, thanks to you and the moderators for allowing me to post my videos so much and suffering through my southern American accent in the process.

I recall reading about Jeff Beck's reasons for quitting the Yardbirds in 1966. He said they were on a grueling bus tour with other bands across America - all packed on the same bus - with goofy American bands strumming and singing Beatles songs in American accents.....lol.

Sorry so long in responding.

The owner thinks only several months. They are always wrong, lol.

I love flat walls with no pipes/conduit to seal around.
