So I have a bit of a problem… where my hive is located I have a very large tree that has died and needs to be cut down. Problem is the tree needs to be cut down by professionals.
So obviously there are a few problems with getting someone with a loud chain saw to climb a large ladder next to a very active bee hive. (However it could make for great entertainment)
But on a serious note what can I do? Is it possible to close the entrance for a day? Would the bees be ok? Or do I move the hive, meaning I would have to relocate it a few kms away and then eventually move it back.
Has anyone done this before, what’s my best option do you think?
