Question: I have honey bees nesting in the walls, (eaves / sub floor / bay window / chimney etc.) of my house. How do I get someone to take these free honey bees and honey?
After all, honey bees are endangered, and beekeepers should want them, right?
Answer: There are several parts to this. First: Honey bees are not disappearing from the planet. Certainly, beekeepers have had some high mortality rates in some years, but honey bees as a species (Apis mellifera L.) are doing quite well globally.
Second: A Homeowner is not doing most beekeepers a favor by providing them access to the bees in a building or structure. There are much easier ways for beekeepers to get honey bees.
Your situation is a real job that may require several hours of work to remove the bees and return the structure to a functional condition. This is work.
If you have honey bees located inside of your home, often in the walls, & you want them removed, you have options .
Whatever you decide to do.
Before you spray, PLEASE do the research first!
