We had another honeybee colony move into TGO  —  this time on Grande Haven.  This one was unique.  They did not move into anything but instead created 7 layers of honeycomb which was hanging down from a gutter.  There were thousands of bees and it took the beekeeper about 3 hours of intense work removing the combs and bees  —  this without any protection.  He never got stung throughout the whole procedure.  Please note that if you do have bees that have moved to your property, do not spray them.  Once the bees have been sprayed, the beekeeper will no longer be able to remove them.  Call TGO Nature Center volunteer, Sandy Juba, (her number is in the TGO directory) to arrange their removal.
