Mid-town Memphis Bee Removal

Today starts the official removal season in the Memphis area. I’ll be in Mid-town removing honey bees from an attic. The homeowner noticed them around Christmas when he was in his attic and we were able to put the removal off until the weather got nicer. The high today should be around 75 F. and it’s already 50. Should be a good day. Photos to follow.

Well, it took a while but here are the photos:
