Here is a small swarm that I got today from under a flatbed trailer. The funniest thing about this one is that I found a Twinkie in U-Channel where the swarm clustered. They were going to town on it. I think it may be what caused them to gather there. That's two small swarms in two days. I hope the third one is HUGE!!!!

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

Scott, now isn't that just plain and simply weird.  Wouldn't ya think that there would be better things for the bees to consume, hee, hee.    Great and awesomely good day.  Cindi

I didn't find it unusual that the bees would eat a twinkie... (well, ok I did considering whats in them!) ...what I found more puzzling was why there was a twinkie tucked in a u-channel underneath a flatbed semi trailer  huh

fire ant bait?  SHB bait?

Fladbed trailers are used for multiple things. This trailer was beat up pretty bad. It could be that it was used to haul bakery scrap. But the fire ant bait thing seems like it could fly to me.
