Co-worker asked if I would get some bees out of the exterior wall of his father's house that had been there a few years. I went to look at it last night. Its about 5:45 CST and there's easily 100 bees crazily swarming around the entrance hole- not foraging traffic (see video). They just started this activity recently. Nothing was done to stir them up.
It seems like they should be in the outer wall which is easily accessed by removing the T111 paneling. There is a remote chance they are actually in the floor joists. Strange architecture going on so I'm not sure.
We stood a good 30-40' away and three people got stung. I told him if I decided that they were too aggressive (AHB) or it went back into areas I could not get to, I'd save what I could and I'd at least help him kill them.
I've done a few removals but the activity on this one has me a little spooked.
Here's a video on my FB page. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v...=video_comment
What would be the best time to do this? I've seen several recommendations to do this in the evening? Trap out first?
