Bees in your wall?

How did they get here? Honeybees reproduce by swarming – windsorthe queen and half the workers in an established hive, leave to set up a new colony elsewhere. They park in a nearby tree for 2-3 days…

or maybe a chair……….

Redhill …..whilst they send out scout bees searching for a new home. The shortage of natural bee homes in the hollows of a tree, means the bees sometimes choose the wall of a house. Typically the entrance is a weephole in the bricks or the gap around a window sill or door frame.

The whole hive can be removed by removing the gyprock from the inside, or in the case of a weatherboard house, we could remove boards from the outside. The bees will be rehomed in a top bar hive and the comb removed.
