Wasps and hornets get priority treatment. You don’t want to get stung; we like killing them.
Honey bees are different. We prefer not killing them unless a bee keeper has declined to take them, since there is a shortage of this beneficial insect.
These honey bees decided to nest in an old duck house.
That was in summer. A lot of bees stayed outside fanning the hive to keep the wax from melting.When a hive is killed off, the remaining honey will leak when it gets hot and the wax comb melts.
Here are scavengers from three different nests claiming that leaking honey. A bee keeper called and asked us to handle it. We did.
