OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) – In West Omaha, a home on Dorcas Street has some undesirable tenants residing of their home.
“His girlfriend had bees in the wall and didn’t know exactly what was going on so he gave me a call,” mentioned Mike Dyer.
But as an alternative of making an attempt to do away with the bees for good, they’re utilizing a completely different methodology.
“A live bee removal. Trying to keep bees alive rather than having them exterminated,” mentioned Tony Sandoval.
Because bees serve an vital position.
“You hate to destroy them. Because they do so much for the environment and there’s always somebody out there that can help,” mentioned Dyer.
They begin with calming the colony with a bee smoker after which begin rigorously tearing down some siding from the home.
So far, the bees have stayed calm.
“As I watch these bees, their behavior has been excellent. It shows really good genetics, they’re very calm,” mentioned Sandoval.
This group of individuals has a mixture of experiences. Tony has been a beekeeper for greater than a decade.
Father and daughter Mike and Danielle Dyer are doing this for the primary time.
“I’ve never actually helped remove bees, but I do keep bees. Danielle and I keep bees and have a couple of beehives at our house,” mentioned Dyer.
It’s a great way for them to find out about bee elimination and have some father-daughter time.
“My sisters got to do some of the activities with him so I missed out on it. And um now, that he started it up again, it’s great we got to do it together and experience it with each other,” mentioned Danielle Dyer.
But the bees had been found to be extra than simply beneath the wooden. They can also be inside the home.
This might be a multi-day challenge.
“When we’re trying to out-think the bees, we aren’t sometimes as smart as a colony and the experience will show we’re not always as smart as bees.”
