No one has said anything only stating a fact. 

 

Facts are fine. And believe me its a nice pay out if you can get it.

Done my 'Bit,... with Bees',.. :laugh: 

 

Now, (in common with other busy Pesters),..during this busiest time of the year),..it isn't financially viable , to be fecking around, sorting out nuisance colonies of bees :no:

 

For the next few months, it has to be guerrilla tactics,..a quick in and out,..get them Wasp nests, 'done and dusted',...then,...onto the next earner... :thumbs:

Not a bad price for the work involved.

I treated a huge bee colony the other day, must've been thousands in the air after the dust went in!! no way to get them out and a householder who is very allergic to bee stings. Only one option unfortunately.

....I'm following Mr wasp and Phil's lead from now on...

Just treated a big colony on the side of an apartment block...

Numerous visits in different apartments to try to locate the actual nest site in the wall
Treatment visit hanging out of a window.
Return next day to block via abseiling equipment.
Numerous phone calls over past few days to report bees appearing in apartments, some requiring visits to put their, and my, mind at rest as to what's going on.

Not fckin worth it.

Swarm of bees in a hive worth 300 quid pays more than destroying them I guess you need access to get the queen ?

Removing a bee colony from a building correctly is beyond the remit of Pest Control.
You're opening yourself up to a world of trouble if you just 'dust and plug'. It ain't as simple as that.

As above, i avoid honey bees where possible . Had to destroy a nest day before yesterday mind, HBs in airbrick. Got a call, went to visit, big listed building. They had already had local beekeeper club round to try entice them out to no avail, left with no option. Dusted, waited 12 hrs then plugged.

Best off to treat em early in the year or as soon as a swarm moves in if possible so the comb has the least amount of honey possible.

Isn't there a pheromone available to make them swarm ,I'm sure bee keepers use it to catch the Queen

You can lure a swarm with lemongrass oil but I don't think you can cause a swarm

Interesting stuff, my mrs has had 3 swarms arrive in the garden at work in the last few weeks, each time the swarm went on a branch of one of the trees, local fella came and took them, last time they went in the chimney and no one would touch them.

If only I had a couple hives I would have also taken the easy swarms.
