Another bee hive
Posted on September 28, 2018 2:00 PM by Dave Scott, Operations Manager
There have been a couple of large bee hives removed from the tiled roofs in different places. These are difficult to remove. Removal requires tile to be taken off and the plywood underlayment to be removed. By time maintenance gets word of, or notices the hives get quite large. If you see any bee activity or notice them flying in and out of the roofs or walls please inform maintenance as soon as possible. Do not call a peat control company. A pest control company will come and spray the bees and leave the hives intact. Leaving the hive intact causes the honey to seep down the walls and sometimes in the townhouse units itself. We remove the hive to prevent this from happening. Notifying maintenance quickly gives us a chance to eliminate the hive when it is small. So keep an eye out and report any type of bee activity to maintenance. It would be greatly appreciated.
