Trails and Safety

Nellie Gail Ranch is in the midst of swarm season. This happens in spring when half of a hive decides to leave the nest, and find a new home elsewhere. Tree branches or in the middle of a tall hedge are popular locations for bees to settle, while the scout bees look for a new home. Once a new location is found, (usually within a couple of days) the bees will move on. If they found a location in your backyard (like an irrigation box), chances are they have made this their new home. Since irrigation boxes are not ideal locations for a beehive, it’s best to call an expert to have them relocated. There are 3 professionals that remove and relocate beehives in the Laguna Hills area. These include Alberta Mirisciotti (949-646-2606); Backyard Bees (714-501-5944); and Dan the Beeman (858-230-0351). Dan only handles large jobs (those located inside walls and chimneys and rafters). Prices to humanely relocate a hive start at $200.00. I hope you’ll call and have your bees relocated instead of exterminated. Our planet needs bees to pollinate fruits, nuts, and vegetables.

Spring Event – Last Weekend to Pick Up Your Kit!

It’s time to spread some love and kindness in Nellie Gail Ranch! Join us in painting some Kindness Rocks that will be displayed in a garden for the community to enjoy. Gather your supplies, your rock painting kit can be picked up at the Tennis & Swim Center, as well as your kind thoughts and sentiments. When considering a message to paint on a rock be sure that it is positive and uplifting. The goal is to inspire someone and make them feel happy when they find one. Imagine the message that you would like to find, chances are it will inspire someone else as well.

When your rock is finished and dry, bring it back to the Tennis and Swim Center for display in our kindness garden.

Special Executive Session Meeting

Tuesday, April 13, 2021

The Board is considering the installation of a clubhouse and business office sprinkler system to meet fire occupancy codes that will protect our recreation building, improve safety and permit more flexible use of the clubhouse. The Board reviewed proposals at a meeting on April 1, 2021, and took no action.  An Executive Session Meeting has been scheduled for the Board to further review and potentially approve a contract to design and install. We will further report to homeowners on this at the April 20th Open Session Meeting and subsequent community mailings. If you have any questions please e-mail admin@nelliegailranch.org.
