I was at a park in Walliston this morning and saw a bee colony in a tree hollow at ground level. Made enquiries with the council and was told the colony was soon to be exterminated due to its location. I enquiried as to whether they would allow for it to be trapped out and they said they would consider it.
I already have enough hives here but if anyone else would like to trap it out let me know asap and I’ll give more details. I don’t think their demise is far away unfortunately. I’m happy to help if necessary, it really wouldn’t be too complicated. (Famous last words)
The irony is that I was there for a tree planting organised by the coumcil which they do each year filling the parks with flowering gums and the like.
