Got a call for a removal from a bee tree today, planning to look at it Sunday. She mentioned wanting to cut down the tree, so I think I can cut out the hive section of the tree and haul it to a bee yard and leave the bees in the tree this winter and do the removal at my leisure this next spring... but we'll see, I enjoy these calls because I never know what's next. :thumbsup:

Out of 3 I've brought in within the last 3 years, one survived the winter. It's one of the strongest hives around now.
It can go either way.

Well the tree was leaning toward the house so it would take a tree removal service with a crane to cut it down which they didn't want to do right now (probably due to cost), and didn't want to wait on a trapout, so it ended up being just a kill-off. I don't feel bad about it though, they have young kids which were getting stung and so I figure sometimes it's not all about the bees, sometimes it's about just helping people out.
