It's spring and the honeybees are alive and active here in Central Texas. Give me a shout if you are having honeybee issues! Let's do the honeybees a favor by letting me rescue them and move them to a better location!
(Site Update 4/04/21)
PLEASE NOTE: If you are interesting in getting bees for an agricultural exemption or for other purposes, I can help you. Please contact me A.S.A.P. as they will become more difficult to get as the calendar move onward. Some planning and preparation will be necessary before you get your bees.
I specialize in all types of honey bee relocation and honey bee rescue. This includes: swarming bee capture, hive removal/relocation, and extractions or "cut-outs".
You can email me by translating this message => [ info AT daddysbees DOT com ]
BTW: Email me ASAP to put your name on the rescued hive list so you can get some of my lovely rescued honey bees! It's a first-come, first-serve list.
I am your friendly local beekeeper(see my service area below). I am an employed public high school teacher by trade, yet saving the honey bees is my hobby. I am a founding member of the Austin Urban Beekeepers Group. I love honey bees, and I make every effort to save our honey bees! Honey bees must like me! Every since I was a child, honey bees have seemed to "just find me"(land on me in a friendly way) and be attracted to me wherever I am at the moment. To some people, I am known as the "The Bee Enchanter".
Notice: We are having a very large global problem of honey bee die-offs. I base my beekeeping responsibilities on natural and safe methods for bee management. My decisions are always based on what is best for the survival of the bees. I don't remove bees if the conditions, such as winter weather, do not give the bees a great chance of survival. I would suggest waiting until the conditions are right for the hive's survival. I do not wish to kill bees!
Please take time to check out the web links I have provided further down this page. You will find them full of great information to help you in your quest to learn more about honey bees.
Thanks so much for your sincere interest,
"The Bee Enchanter"
honey bees I recover are placed in a nice new hive(home)
located in north Hays, Williamson, or Travis Counties of
Texas. I have other apiaries available in nearby areas
and these apiaries are utilized as proper bee hive
management dictates. Each new hive is watched and
managed for hive success and growth. This may include
replacing the original queen with a strong and
successfully mated queen of genetics that best suit that
particular group of feral bees.
I have successfully extracted and
relocated alive many of our area's honey bees from many
different environments; trees, barns, floors, walls,
concert speakers, a pile of old tires, old cars, house
eves, ceilings, and attics. I have a special trick for
safely getting bees out of trees.
My honey bee removals are designed to safely and naturally extract the honey bees into live cages that facilitate a smooth transfer of them into their new home(hive). I have great success in keeping the honey bees alive and healthy!!! My work is very professional and I have many happy families/businesses that are now safe and free of their honey bee infestation.
I always wish I could take more pictures of my cut-outs, but there is not always someone willing to take the pics in the heat of bee hive extractions. And I, of course, have sticky hands and protective gear on which is not always conducive to great photography. But of course, I have a few pics for you to check-out anyway.
This link has a few of my favorite honeybee pictures for you!!!
My service area is part of the following counties of Texas:
Blanco, Burnet, Hayes, Travis, and Williamson.
