Honeybee Swarm!

A neighbor came to us today to tell us that she had a swarm of bees in a box behind her house. Hubby went right over and collected them. Hopefully the buzzy girls will like their new home.

The Swarm Was in the Green Box Under the Board

A Nice Big Swarm

The Leftover Bees Still on the Board
Hubby put a post on a board at work to see if anyone would like a hive at their house. We want to keep our beekeeping legal, and so we are limited to two hives in our city. It's amazing how in a few hours, a number of people are interested in having a hive at their home, but don't want to bother with a new hobby. I didn't realize so many people would want bees in their gardens, but bees are so good for pollination. I guess I'm not the only crazy one around!
