Bee Hive Removal Gaviota

Bee hive removal in the picturesque setting of Hollister Ranch in Gaviota.  The hive was most likely a couple of years old and needed to be removed since the owner was going to demo the shed.  To make the whole process go quicker, the owner was willing to do all of the cutting in the floor area if I could provide a bee suit.  Instead of giving you more photos of bees, this time I just wanted to include a few shots of the landscape.

Bee Hive Removal Goleta

So have you ever wondered what was in those cylinder shaped cable boxes that sit out on your side yard?  Yes, sometimes more than just cable. 

This was a hive that had been around longer than one season. I had picked up a swarm from this hive approx. 2 weeks ago and it may have swarmed again as recently as few days prior to the extraction.

Bee Swarm Season is Here in Santa Barbara

Bees are now starting to swarm.  In the last couple of weeks I've picked up 4 bee swarms...

2/7 - Isla Vista_ With the help from a friend who climbed the pepper tree to clip the branch as I was perched on a ladder in the bed of my truck with a box... Thanks Jesse. This swarm actually left the deep hive box that I placed it in the next day and I had to rehive it.  It is now doing very well.

2/21 - Goleta_ A nice swarm on a wire fence from a survivor hive.  The hive was located in the base of a large yucca tree and the bees swarmed and balled up on the fence about 45 feet away.
