How to get bees out of double brick wall
« on: November 23, 2010, 12:04:19 AM »
Ok - got a call from the local lolly factory today - they have a swarm of bees inside a double brick wall.  They're not sure how long they have been there - could be several months.

Short of taking the wall down - is there anyway to get them to come out?

Best thing is to open the wall, second best is a trap out.

If they had been there but a short time you could have possibly run them out with bee quick, honey robber etc... but that doesn't always go according to plan, could just move them into another section.

EEEWWWWWW!!! :-D
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Double brick - do a trapout!
Will take a bit of gear, some time to prep, time to setup, and several followup trips.
