Tackling Pesky Beehives All In A Day's Work

<< Return to all Case Studies


We had a call from Margaret at Kiwimana; she needed some assistance to get a bee swarm down from a tree in Massey, West Auckland. Kiwimana is listed with Auckland Council as a volunteer service for collecting swarms, as well as undertaking various bee related services.

AK staff members Billy May and Ethan Phipps got suited up and cut the branch with the bee swarm attached and lowered it to the ground, where it could be boxed up by the beekeepers.

Margaret was really happy that we could help out, and the operation was really quick and smooth with one of our mobile elevated work platforms on site to help.
