In a recent workshop held at Giroud Tree and Lawn, Philadelphia Beekeeper Guild President, Suzanne Matlock, taught tree service companies and homeowners how to protect honeybees.
The training session focused on identifying honeybees, why honeybees are important to crop production, finding honeybees in trees, and resources to contact for safe removal of honeybee swarms and colonies.
“Honeybees often locate colonies in tree cavities and other structures, which means Giroud tree service crews are likely to encounter swarms or colonies on the job,” explained Lou Giroud, President of Giroud Tree and Lawn.
“The crew now have a better understanding about the importance of honeybees, what to look for when climbing a tree or encountering a swarm and who to contact for safe removal.”
