My long time friend, Anita Renshaw, had a problem with a hive in a backyard tree. Unfortunately, it had become quite a nuisance and needed to be removed. Because she wanted to save the tree, the plan was to save as many bees as possible for relocation into other hives and then humanely destroy and seal the existing holes in the tree. I always hate having to destroy bees, but at times it is a necessity. Below is a photo of how the bees were bearding on the tree and also a photo of Anita and myself with the bees we were able to save.
