Honey Bee Swarm Capture

In my last post, I wrote about it being the time of year when honeybees swarm. I thought I would add a subject source to my blog posts and that is documenting the work I do in rescuing, capturing, and saving honeybees. Once in a while, you may read about a honey bee swarm that lands somewhere that is not exactly welcome; for example, in someone’s roof eve, hanging off a deck rail, or up in a tree nearby a lot of heavy foot traffic.

I got a call from a concerned customer at the Korean Palace restaurant in San Jose, CA who detailed the plight of a particular swarm of honey bees about twelve feet off the ground that definitely needed rescuing. After securing the restaurant owner’s permission, I packed up my swarm capturing tools and headed on down to the Korean Palace. When I arrived, I met with both the owner and the concerned diner who showed me the location of the swarm. After surveying the situation, I set up my twelve foot ladder and went to work. It took about an hour to capture this hive and attract all the worker bees to the queen bee. I really appreciate the kind telephone call and the cooperation of the restaurant’s owner for helping save the honeybees. I relocated the honeybees to a new home in Almaden Valley where they are thriving, pollinating, and helping maintain a healthy eco-system.

  1. Do you think their honey will taste like Kimchi?
    How are your bees doing, Donald?
    Would you have any time to talk about bees this weekend?
