Liz lives in Culver City and was contacted by her neighbor who saw a swarm land and move into Liz’s fuse box. The neighbor was in complete awe and both women insisted the bees be relocated and not killed! I went over to collect the swarm.
Liz’s 19-month old daughter, Riley, was fascinated by the entire experience and watched from behind a glass door for the beginning. By the end though, realizing that the bees were not aggressive at all, everyone came outside to watch more closely. (Incidentally, Liz is now considering getting a bee hive of her own).
I got the bees safely removed and placed them in a box for transport to Venice, where they seem to enjoy their new digs!
