A plane is forced to change gates to allow honey bees to come in for a landing!
Who would of thought that small tiny honey bees could reroute a huge plane loaded with passengers? Yet this is what happened, a swarm of 15,000 honey bees landed on the jetway where passengers normally unload. Airport officials, not wanting to take a chance with the bees potentially stinging passengers as they unloaded, decided to reroute the planes until the bees could be removed.
This is a honey bee removal job I recently did in Augusta GA. I was amazed at how many dead bees were on the floor and window of the room. There literally could have been 10,000 or more dead bees. The ceiling had a softball sized hole where the bees could get through. Since bees are attracted to the light, they were flying to the window thinking it was an exit point. Once seperated from the hive and in the confined space of the room, the bees died quickly.
Just outside the Aqua Midtown Condos in downtown Atlanta, a large mass of honey bees were all clinging together 20 feet up in a tree, about 15,000 of them. Now how they got there seems somewhat of a mystery. Surrounded with tall buildings and busy streets the area does not look like an ideal living situation for the bees.

Southeast Bee Removal encountered a strange sight when called upon to remove a swarm of honeybees from a house in Macon Georgia. The 25,000 bees had swarmed into a solid wall formation of approximately two feet by five feet and two inches thick.
The formation in the picture below is how the bees looked when I arrived!
Joshua got a call from the Atlanta Braves 2017 Stadium, they had found honey bees at the construction site. Joshua went and did a bee inspection, then afterward was given a tour of the new Atlanta Braves Stadium, set to be finished in 2017! How cool and fun!

Bees in the Mail? It appears that is exactly what these honeybees were thinking! Located in Decatur, Ga in Atlanta, scout bees from this colony had been coming into the client's home, looking for a permanent place. I discovered the full colony here on the neighbor's mailbox, which they had chosen as their temporary shelter. I rescued and removed these honeybees live and relocated them to our bee yard in Fayetteville, Ga.
Here is an example of a serious honey bee infestation in a home in Mountain Brook, near Birmingham, Alabama. I first gave a free bee removal estimate, included repairs.
All three of these bee hives were in the same house! They were found in the floor joists between the first and second floor.

Between Carrollton and Newnan is the historic Banning Mills in Whitesburg, Ga. This retreat and conservation center includes ropes courses, cayaking, lodge retreats...Also thought it was pretty awesome that they hold a couple Guiness Book of World Records: largest zipline eco-canopy tour and tallest freestanding climbing wall. :)!! And...here were found BEES, too!!
About 25,000 of them, in fact, under the Tree Terrace. The bees hadn't been there for long and the staff were quick to deal with the situation, calling Southeast Bee Removal for live honey bee removal.
Here are some photos of where the bees were located:
