PLEASE HELP SAVE THE HONEYBEES!!!
I am your friendly local beekeeper(see my service area below). I am a school teacher by trade, yet saving the honeybees is my hobby. I am an active member of the Austin Urban Beekeepers Group. I love honey bees, and I make every effort to save our honey bees! Honey bees must like me! Every since I was a child, honey bees have seemed to "just find"(land on me in a friendly way) and be attracted to me where ever I am at the moment. To some people, I am known as the "The Bee Enchanter".
Notice: We are having a very large global problem of honey bee die-offs. I base my beekeeping responsibilities on natural and safe methods for bee management. My decisions are always based on what is best for the survival of the bees. I don't remove bees if the conditions, such as winter weather, do not give the bees a great chance of survival. I would suggest waiting until the conditions are right for the hive's survival. I do not wish to kill bees!
Please take time to check out the web links I have provided further down this page. You will find them full of great information to help you in your quest to learn more about honey bees.
Thanks so much for your sincere interest,
"The Bee Enchanter"
ATTENTION:Now that the early spring bloom is here. For those folks that have been waiting for this time of year, it now time to set your appointment for removing and saving the honeybees.
Usually I see our first swarms beginning around the 2nd or 3rd week of March. Please call me when you see one!!!
The honey bees I recover are
placed in a nice new hive(home) located in north Hays County or western
Travis County, Texas. I
other apiaries available in nearby areas and these apiaries are
utilized as proper bee hive management dictates. Each new hive is
managed for hive success and growth. This may include replacing the
original queen with a strong and successfully mated queen of genetics
that best suit that particular group of feral bees.
My honey bee removals are designed to safely and naturally extract the honey bees into live cages that facilitate a smooth transfer of them into their new home(hive). I have great success in keeping the honey bees alive and healthy!!! My work is very professional and I have many happy families/businesses that are now safe and free of their honey bee infestation.
I always wish I could take more pictures of my cut-outs, but there is not always someone willing to take the pics in the heat of bee hive extractions. And I, of course, have sticky hands and protective gear on which is not always conducive to great photography. But of course, I have a few pics for you to check-out anyway.
This link has a few of my favorite honeybee pictures for you!!!
The following link is provided by one of my many happy customers, who actually had a volunteer take these photos of the extraction process. I thought it was pretty cool so I provided their web link. (Environment: A 15 feet elevated hive behind a stucco wall. The hive entrance was on the back-side wall's overhead eve. Location: A church building.)
Bastrop, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Comal, Guadalupe, Hayes, Travis, and Williamson.
