These people had bees six years prior in a wall section adjacent to where this colony was. They wanted me to remove bricks to get to the colony that flew in on Saturday, three days ago.
The exterior already had a gaping hole from the last removal six years ago, so I guess it made sense to remove even more bricks, at least to the home owners.
This was no fun, cutting and hammering out bricks for hours to catch a two and a half pound swarm.
The best part of this removal was when our very own Annette called me in regards to going out and catching her very first swarm, all by herself!
Yes Beemaster, eat your heart out, I got to speak with Annette by phone, two different times!
Annette says she's from Brooklyn and I expected a heavy Brooklyn accent. Well, she has a very sweet voice, California like. Since she's been living in Cali for 30 years now, I guess that Brooklyn accent has worn off, amazing how that happens.
It was a real pleasure speaking with you Annette and I hope I helped some.
I'll let her post about this swarm of hers and you're not gonna believe where this swarm was!
