The only bee friendly apartment complex in Abilene. Timber Ridge Apartments Bee Removal Abilene TX
Just wanted to point out another bee friendly company in Abilene Tx. Here is the story; Timber Ridge Apartments Bee Removal Abilene TX
My friend Tony called me last night to tell me he had bees coming in his apartment. Tony also stated that he gave my number to the manager and they should be calling.
They did around !:00 pm asking me to come take a look. They stated that to other people came and looked.
I asked Megan the apartment manager what the other guys said.
Megan told me that they said that the bees were migrating and they would be gone in a couple days.
That word migrate is used by people that do not know what they are talking about when it comes too bees. It makes it sound like the bees are going south for the winter.
We showed up at 3:00 pm to do an inspection. Hiding under the dryer vent cover was a small swarm of bees.
Because Tony told me they were getting into his apartment I left the swarm to image his walls. Thankfully there were no bees in his walls.
Deciding to remove the swarm I went back to the dryer vent. Gone, the swarm was gone.
My helper said that they went over to another building. We checked and the swarm had started to move into a second dryer vent.
This vent had no duct, it was just a hole in the floor between the apartments. Adding a little bee repellent we were able to drive them out.
Re-clustering on a bush, we cage them and the queen and left.
Important to note that a swarm of bees are not migrating, they are looking for a home. Most of the time the swarm will colonize the wall they land on.
Other times they will move, but only a few hundred yards.
Our thanks goes out to Timber Ridge Apartments for considering the bees.
Check them out. Here
