removing a hive without cutting out
« on: March 12, 2009, 12:21:37 PM »
I need some help from the experts. I was talking to our City parks and Receration supervisor and he said they have several trees wtih bee hives in them. He said last year the mower guys got stung numerous times every time they mowed around the tree. He said they were going to "gas" them. I told him to give me a chance to get them out and he said ok. I told him I needed to to wait until it got warmer, only in the 30s and that was ok. So the question is, is there anyway to get the bees out of the trees without cutting the tree down? I cant cut or kill the tree.

do a search right here on "trap out".  iddee is teaching us all  :-)
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
