At least that's what she told me. "I've lived here ten years and had bees all that time."
Not that I doubt her, of course.

I knew the story as soon as I opened her up. Cocoons everywhere from the moths and once the comb was out I could see the imprint of at least three different sets of combs. The all to common tale of two to three and collapse followed by swarm and repeat. Sad
At least they now have a chance.

Not any of mine. the one I got this weekend after vacing all the bees and cutout we found her wandering around on the floor. She was pickiting and holding a peace sign.  afro That's why I call them my Geo Green team.
