A removal we recently did and a lesson that someone learned before we got there: Chucking tools into a hive is not the nicest thing to do to get a hive to "go away" and it doesn't work either. So, thank you for the bees, they are quite nice and we have let them keep their pliers too, they seem to have accepted them as a gift from the passer by. ;) #Bee #HoneyBee #Removal #Relocation #Tool #Pliers #BeeBarfApiaries #Hive #Honey #Comb #Tree
