Winter Park Live Honey Bee Removal from Birdhouse!

This is really cool... Honey Bees moved into a birdhouse in Winter Park, Fla., and came to the homeowner's rescue to perform a live honey bee relocation.

Now, African Honey bees, aka Killer Bees, really, really prefer smaller voids such as bird houses, feeders, wildlife nesting boxes and the like, so it's quite probable that these are African. But, in this case , we were able to remove the birdhouse, with live bees and relocate them to our quarantine apiary, where we can monitor them and requeen to ensure good, gentle genetics.

If you have bees in a birdhouse, or anywhere else, contact us, the Stinging Insect Experts at or 800-343-5317.
