Many of you know that we have had the problem of having bees in a chimney that we want to use and we didn’t want to kill the bees (which was most peoples solution). We found a nice man who loves bees and was prepared to try to remove them for us without killing them. Yesterday he turned up at the door at 8 am to do the job.
I didn’t take photos of him partly dismantling our chimney!… but this is only part of a jackdaws news he found in there.
In the process of clearing the chimney our office was quite alive with bees.
Considering the amount of bees, there was only a small piece of comb that had honey in it, small but a real gift!
We extracted almost a jar of honey from it.
We now have, after a very busy and tiring day, a clear chimney ready to fit our wood burner my in laws have kindly given us 🙂
