Cupertino Bee Removal – Infertile Queen

We did a structural bee removal this Saturday in Cupertino. The bees were entering from a huge opening next to the chimney, making it an easy entry to the attic to build their home. The bees have been there for a few weeks as the brood has just been capped. And speaking of brood, when I see small cells for worker bees with ugly, larger domed cappings, it tells me that the queen is not fertile. She probably mated but didn’t mate well or something else is wrong with her. I’ll give her a chance before I take action.
