Beehive removal on F Street

City of Tehachapi


Public Works crews worked alongside a beekeeper and tree trimmer on Wednesday Nov. 1, 2017 for the safe removal of a beehive on F Street.

"It was a good environmentally friendly way to deal with this type of issue. We were able to save the bees and restore safety for the public," said Ryan Montgomery Public Works Director.

The beehive was found to be deep inside a rotting tree on F Street in downtown. The initial attempt to encourage the bees to move into a bee box mounted on the tree was unsuccessful. The bees will find a new home at an apiary so they can help the environment during a time where we are seeing a decline in the bee population.

"Ultimately the tree was completely rotten and hollow in many sections and needed to be removed," said Montgomery.
