Now, the basics of what we do...

A colony consist of a laying queen, a few hundred plus workers and a handful of drones. The comb is the nest where the honey bees raise their young and store food.

First, we need to locate the nest.  Either by Thermal Imaging or old school (knock and listen).

After we find the nest, we expose the cavity the nest is in.

Carefully, we search thru the comb, looking  for the queen.  Caging her when she is found.

At the same time, we capture and cage most of the workers and remove all the comb.

Then, we take it all back to the apiary and rebuild the bees nest into a hive. The apiary is where the beekeeper tends to the needs of the colony.

Of course not all colonies move in to your house.  Some just hang around outside; these are called open air colonies.

Honey bees are a great thing to have around.  They bring an abundance of life and beauty to our otherwise dreary lives.

But, having bees living in your house is not the best idea.  Call your associate to schedule a removal.

IRescueBees and our associates will get them out in a professional and friendly manner.  Live removal and relocation is what we do.

So let's talk about swarms...

Seeing a swarm of honey bees hanging on a tree branch is both exciting and concerning. Exciting because of the rarity of the sight, concerning because you don't know what to expect.

Bees in a swarm (clustered together) are docile.  In fact, even Killer bee swarms are calm.  The reason is that a swarm of bees have no young to protect.  Here's how it works...

Honey bees live in a social order, that we call a colony.  A colony is a nest with comb, a queen, and a few thousand workers.

The queen can lay up to two thousand eggs a day.  As the colony out grows their nest, the colony splits.

Mother queen and half of her workers leave to find a new home.

Both of these are swarms.  The swarm in the tree is still looking for a home, but the swarm on the wall has already found one.

After a couple of days, the swarm on the wall will disappear into it. Quickly, they build their nest.  If left too long, the bees will become very protective.

It is much easier and less expensive to remove a swarm than to remove a colony.  Call us right away, do not wait.

 Are the bees really dying?...

Nationally, beekeepers lost forty four percent of their colonies from 2015 to 2016, according to State Apiary inspection services surveys of commercial beekeeper colony losses.

It turns out that summer losses are higher than winter losses. Which means a huge problem with our managed colonies.

Commercial beekeepers will have to charge more for colony rental to farmers; resulting in higher produce prices, even at Walmart.

Experts act as if they are baffled by the bees die off; having confusing answers, or just not telling.

Yet, we beekeepers suspect something far more scarier than colony collapse.  I, for one, am not afraid to tell you.

Large percentages of all crops are GMO.  Ninety-four percent of cotton, Eighty-nine percent of alfalfa, Ninety percent of canola and Fifty-four percent of sugar beets, just to name a few.

Looking for carbs and proteins, honey bees do not read the label. Neither do they know the difference between GMO and heirloom.

Carrying it from one field to the other, they, along with the wind are spreading this genetic pollution around the globe.

To add insult to injury, the excessive pesticide and herbicide use is (in the opinion of most beekeepers) the cause of our colony losses.

Here are some things you can do...

Live bee removal and relocation is a great start; saving tens of thousands of colonies a year.

Take for example, the little city of Abilene, Texas.  Over 50 feral colonies of bees are removed and relocated every year.  Amazing, is it not?

Now, multiple this by 2000 cities of the same size or larger, in America.  Wow!  That's a lot of colonies saved.

Another way to help, is to support your local beekeeper by the purchase of local honey and or having those bees in your house removed.

Consider becoming a beekeeper yourself. Here on IRescueBees we have a blog series called beekeeping basics, check it out.

We are always posting on our blog beekeeping basics, helping the beginner to become successful.

Planting for bees is easy, if you do not want to keep bees.  Here are some examples of plants that bees love.
