Shed Floor, Doll House/Bird House---August 7, 2009
« on: August 08, 2009, 12:54:02 AM »
Lots of bees in the shed floor, pics show two boxes but there is a third box full of bees. Very gentle bees, very nice customers.

Right after this one I ran across town a little ways and picked up a swarm that moved into a doll house, they say bird house, looks like a doll house to me.

Here's the pics: http://picasaweb.google.com/pyxicephalus/August72009#

So did you just take the bird/doll house back home with you to cut out later? That looks like it will be reallllyyy fun to do.

That sure was a nice big fat juicey looking queen you found in the first cut out.

Yep, the doll house is now about 8' from the speaker box bees. Will most likely transfer them from the doll house later today.

looks like a bird house made to look like a doll house :-).

are those slugs on the first cutout?  nice looking queen.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Those are pecan shells that some how wound up in the hive. A rat most likely brought them under the shed at some point.
