Bee Removal – Going High-Tech

Yesterday I just ordered a ProVision PV618 Borescope from for a great price. Retail is $99. Discount Code TJS will minus $10. So $89 plus it still qualifies for FREE shipping. Internet order, no tax either. Here’s the link for those needing one: eToolDirect Borescope Link

Anyways, how will a borescope help my bee removal? It’ll help me greatly in finding where the bee colony is without tearing things apart. All I would need to do is drill a 1/4 inch hole and stick the borescope inside to see what’s there. 1/4 inch hole is small  and easily repaired. I won’t need to tear down anymore walls or ceilings to find the bees now. 🙂
