Cut-out over dormer window in Algiers, Louisiana. This little colony was hot!!!

I found a queen but the bees were balling and stinging her to death. She was black.

Hey JP,

Thanks for the photos. Nice job in a tight spot. Look like all the comb was new. They must not have been there long. Good Job!

Yeah Scott, new hive for sure. They sure were testy little suckers too. It was a lil chilly when I opened them up, could be the reason for their bad manners.
