Zoo giving away residents
« on: April 18, 2009, 10:09:56 PM »
Picked up a small swarm at the NC zoo tonight. About 2 1/2 lb. in a small pine tree 14 ft. up. 25 feet outside the grizzly bear habitat. Another 30 feet and they could keep them.  :shock:   :shock:   :shock:

One sting on top of head. "probably broke the stinger off on that rock".
Numerous bees stinging as they went down my shirt.

Today was the first two I got to keep. All the others were caught for other beeks in their yard.

By my math, that would mean you'd be willing to go up to 4 feet 11 inches into grizzly bear habitat for the bees... which is about 5 feet further than I'd go.   :shock:
