I'm driving to Butler GA tomorrow, two hours south of Atlanta, to inspect the 10 hives we installed from packages last Saturday.
The guys who are already down there report that there appears to be a hive of bees who have taken up residence in the oven area of an old stove left on the property.
Supposing that is true, how worried should I be that these might be Africanized bees given where they chose to live?
How would one approach a removal from a stove? I assume I would cut out the comb and rubber band it into frames in a hive and then what? Brush the bees into the hive with a bee brush?
