    Zookeep: I'm with you! Two trap out calls Sunday, one completed and one passed on because it's 2.5 stories up, and a removal call today in a Mermaid!? :???: I will be posting the mermaid pics soon for some ideas. Just think...it isn't even the buzzy season!! I hope this keeps up! Hope you have a great season!! (Sorry to all our Northern friends...:sad:)

    Do'nt you Florida beeks run into AHB swarms? To me a swarm or hive in a water meter would throw up a red flag. Jack

    The chimney swarm looks like they took up resident in between the brick and flue or in the blocks. can you break off the flue cover to see how far down the bees are, your going to have to mortar it to seal the crack once you are done.

    I think Apis is hitting in the right direction. I would say they are in the cinder block as well.

    Looks like just a little demo work and repair will be necessary to get them out. Did a trap out last summer that was very similar.
