View Inside the False Wall

The honey bees installed in the false wall that was constructed by members of the South Jersey Beekeepers Association (SJBA) had six weeks to build comb. The plexiglass back allowed attendees at the spring state meeting to view just how much work a colony of honey bees can accomplish between the studs of a home's wall.

While many New Jersey beekeepers will collect swarms of honey bees that have temporarily clustered in a shrub or on the branch of tree, not all have the skills to remove honey bees that have taken up housekeeping in the walls of a structure.

To find a New Jersey beekeeper who will pick up swarms or remove honey bee colonies from inside the walls of a structure, go to our swarm collectors webpage.
