chimney bees ventura

Today i got a call from ventura for bees in a chimney. 2 Story home and I am afraid of heights so big fun (NOT) WHen i looked down in the 2 story chimney I saw this:
The comb started about 2 ft from the top of the chimney, so my hands could only reach the top of the comb. I used a rake to "catch" the comb when i was cutting it with my other hand. To my surprise it worked and i got 95% of the comb out, only real small parts fell down. Will pick them up tomorrow evening.

I went to collect the bees today, since it will rain tomorrow. I was only able to take one picture before my camera froze on my with a cryptic "change the battery pack" (but I tried all 4 fully charged batteries, still the same error) [CLICK ON PICTURE FOR ENLARGED VIEW]

I left the nuc box strapped on top of the chimney so the bees could regroup. That certainly worked since almost all bees were inside the box!


  1. That sure is one fine nuc box. ;)

  2. I really appreciate for your efforts you to put in this article, this is very informative and helpful. I really enjoyed reading this blog. Keep sharing and give us updates.
