Please note that Honey Bees have been spotted in CHOA.
Here is a note from one of our neighbors – “Yesterday, Sunday May 27th…….Memorial Day weekend I was sitting by the F & G Pool about 4:00 when I noticed a swarm of bees on the side of the pool house. They just appeared and swarmed for 30 to 60 minutes and then gathered on a bush to rest. I thought they looked like honey bees (and they were). I know that we shouldn’t destroy bees……….just report them. Well, on Memorial weekend you can imagine how hard is was to get ahold of anyone for a non-emergency call. Finally, I was in touch with “Debbie” in Woodland Washington (Preservation Bee Keeping) who gave me a local # (503-649-8577). A very nice lady came out and was very happy that no one had tried to destroy the bees. She gathered them in a box and asked if she could leave it over night, since as the weather cools most of the bees will get in the box. She came before 7:00am this morning and took her bees”.
In addition, there is a Daniel Kovac who also works with bees. He can be contacted is 503-628-1236.
Please do not destroy Honey Bees. Please call one of the two numbers in this Post if you see Honey Bees.
