Free honey!!! (and bees!)


Recommended Posts

This is an established wild bee/honey operation that has to go. We don't want to kill them so we are looking for someone to relocate the bees and the honeycomb/hive from our tree. I'm sure farmers would love to have these pollinators. Maybe they can be rented out. See photos. The bees, hive & combs are about 15' off the ground.

Located in Mohave Valley, AZ

If that's a hollow part of the tree the bees have setup their home in it's going to be hard to permanently remove them without cutting that section of the tree out, because the Queen is deep within that hive, if you don't get the Queen you don't get rid of the hive.

Thanks Skip. Great point. That's a big old salt cedar tree that is liable to break right there if it is hollow and anyone cuts it. WIDOW MAKER!!!

I wonder what they did with them. Bees are too valuable to exterminate.
