Electric Meter Swarm Lure in Los Altos :)

Well, here we are again. This is the third swarm that moved into this electric meter box in Los Altos. The homeowners call me when they see bee activity and I go and rescue them. 🙂 But this time they called a few weeks late so it was a cutout instead of a swarm removal. The bees already built a good amount of comb as you can see from the picture below.

We didn’t catch the queen until the very end. Had to spray a little bee-quik to get the bees running around before I could find her. I was worried that the queen might have gone up the wall as there’s a good sized hole running up the wall for the electric wires.

Good thing she didn’t run up. Find her running around with the rest of the bees after I sprayed some bee-quik.
