Calm Female ! – Submitted by Hennepin County Coordinator

Bob Hursh – May 30th

Clare
She was very calm considering there were about 500 ants and as many eggs in the box with her.  Solution:  
  • retrieved an extra nest from another site
  • removed the ant infested nest and carried it a distance away
  • brushed out the remaining ants and eggs
  • inserted the clean/dry replacement nest
  • returned the five recently hatched bluebirds to their new nest
  • treated top area of the EMT conduit post with Tanglefoot
  • moved off and waited for the female to return
  • she re-entered and stayed in the box as if nothing had happened

Good job Bob – way to go !
