Swarm? Cutout? Removal?-6/12/17

Post by Jacobs » Mon Jun 12, 2017 5:53 pm

The homeowner called me this morning after a cloud of bees arrived and the pest control person identified them as honey bees and told him to call a beekeeper. He could not give a good description of what he was seeing so I asked him to let things settle until mid afternoon and call me. When he called me, the bees had largely settled--in the cabinet of a speaker.

The first photo is inside the cabinet--after removing the large speaker in the second picture. I vacuumed a very respectable swarm that had not been inside long enough to start comb building.

I'm not sure what kind of removal this should be labeled as, but I did not charge for the effort.
