On August 28, 2015 Sandy Juba and bee expert, Kim Powell, went to Peter and Linda Batchelar’s house to remove honey bees which had taken up residency on a wood barrel.  Kim relocated the bees to his farm.

Honey bees are important for our ecosystem as they are pollinators.  Unfortunately, the honey bee’s population has been reduced dramatically so we need to do our part in protecting them. Having a bee removal expert like Kim relocate the bees is preferable over hiring an exterminator who will kill the honey bees.  Read about the importance of honey bees as pollinators by clicking here.

Thank you Peter and Linda for choosing to have the bees relocated so they can continue their important pollination work instead of having them exterminated!

If you live in TGO and need honey bees removed, please call Sandy Juba (her phone number is in theTGO phone directory) and she will make arrangements with Kim Powell.

The barrel below is a close-up of the bees on the barrel.  Click on any of the photos to get an enlarged view where you can zoom in for a closer look.
