.....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.....

Too easy! Smiley Did you find the queen?

I had it happen to me once but it was a queenless swarm. The scent from my truck and old bee boxes attracted them.
Maybe I shouldn't leave my lemongrass oil in my cupholder.  grin

Did you just stand there like "Yep... That's how I do it."
