The Florida Forest Service told be about some bees that have been in one of their buildings for several months maybe even a year that they would like to have removed.  The building is scheduled to be demolished and they would like the bees removed ASAP. Any problems removing bees from a wall this time of year that I should be aware of other than making absolutely certain to get the queen or should I wait until spring?

Wait until spring if you can. If something should happen to the queen (always a possibility) and they need to raise a new one the odds are against her being well mated now.

We should have drones flying in late Feb.

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."

Thanks Scott.  I thought I knew the answer but wanted to double check before making a mistake. I spoke with the owner of the building today and was told that the bee removal can wait until the spring.  He would rather find the bees a new home rather than have them exterminated.

Don't we all love the folks that are reasonable.  Really, we do!
