Posted to the Lewis County Food Hub by the Bee Wrangler Honey: It seems to Bee game on. 2 swarms in 2 days. If you see a swarm of bees please don't disturb them. Please call myself or another beekeeper to remove them.
WE ONLY DEAL WITH HONEY BEES. Not wasp, hornets or yellow jackets. We will also remove from inside the walls of buildings. This is a service that we provide free to the community. Any donations that we may receive will go towards our youth education project.
