    Bee Removal

    Got honeybees in one of my exterior walls. I know where their entry/exit is, and that it's been there less than a week (I mowed last friday)

    The only places locally that I know of are Hoyt's Honey Farm - and their phone is disconnected?

    I've heard that some beekeepers will remove them for free, to use the queen to start a new colony. Is this true?

    Need a BUNCH of help guys!

    A few years back we had a infestation of bees in the St. Louis, I was working at a local car dealership and they decided to land there....There were millions. No joke. A group of them decided to land on one of the service bay doors, the ones that are all glass pannels. You could not see through the door it was coverd!!
    The company that came to "wrangle" the bees said a swarm of them passing though the area lost the Queen and did not know what to do or where to go so they just stoped.

    I thought all the bees were dead???

    they might if they are desperiate but most times they just get rid of the colony. Most good keepers dont just want any queen or colonly without knowing the percent of africanized is in the colony. If the colonly has high rate of africanized it can contaminate there other hives.

    We just had another one recently here in STL, this time at a school. The beekeeper came in, smoked most of them out, moved what he could, and put them to use on his farm. Don't know if they got the queen or not, but the school seemed to be back to normal pretty soon afterwards.
