Help rescue a colony - Solved, thanks

Post by cbergren » Fri Sep 27, 2013 6:03 pm

Hi - There's a large bees nest on the outside of my house in Gunbarrel. It's probably a 2 ft diameter colony with 4-5 honeycombs on it. I'm told the bees will die when it freezes, but I would like someone to save them please. The nest is 20 ft up and accessible. Except for the height, the extraction should be easy. I have one ladder up to them already. The colony is attached on one side to a brick chimney and on the top to the roof overhang. Extraction should go smoothly and I'm told they have not gotten into the house. 720 732 6863 cell - Charlie
