Here is an account of the oldest honey bee colony I have ever heard of, located in Rutledge, GA about 45 minutes east of Atlanta.  

It was Ms. Sandra Verner Latimer, who contacted Southeast Bee Removal for the job:

"My family's ancestral home has had honeybees in the front corner of the porch and half-column against the wall of the house for as long as I can remember and I am 67 years old. My grandmother was born in the house in 1880 and she told us the bees were there when she was a child. I also grew up there and remember several times when my parents had local beekeepers try to remove the bees without success. I know they finally let the exterminator try, but even then, the bees came back."

The beam that supported the porch roof was filled with dripping honey comb!

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.
