Bee Tree 1
A tree trimmer called Rich Brutsche that he had bees in a tree that had come
down during a wind storm. He asked Rich to remove it. Here are
the pictures of it. Rich put plywood on the bottom and top (hole in
the top plywood). A hive body was set on the top with a hole in the
from of the hive body. All the holes in the tree section were closed
After about a month the queen went into the hive body and laid eggs.
Rich put a queen excluder between the hive body and the hive. The
queen could not return to the tree section. After three weeks (for the
brood to hatch) Rich put a bee excluder with the queen excluder. The
bee could not go back to the tree section once they left. The hive
body has since been moved to a hive base. I have not heard what he did
with the tree section the bees were in.
