Stopped by my outyard today on my way home from work to shift a honey super to 9 frames, and lo and behold, this is what I saw when I got there:

(Sorry about the low quality pic, all I had with me was my cell phone.)



Fortunately, the main branch stopped above the hives, and even the small side branches barely hit them. I'll have to work with the landowner to remove the branch, it's clearly in the way of the bees (and mine!). I was pretty scared when I saw the branch, but I'm glad everything came out intact.

Wow, that was a close one!! I had a limb fall right on a hive and that colony absconded.

Wow, that was close....could have been a big mess, or a loss of hives.  Was there a recent storm?

I won't let grass grow under my feet, there will be plenty of time to push up daisies.
