Fun Things bees do....

Back in June a local bee keeper captured a swarm.  He installed her in a nice hive.   But after a time he couldn't understand out where she was.   He finally found this...


The queen had decided that she liked UNDER the hive much better then in the hive itself.

Oliver Maxwell  "We put the old base on to the top of the hive - then waited for the queen to go down to the main box. Next we put a queen excluder on so she wouldn't come back ... wait 3 weeks for all the eggs to hatch - then remove the old base. We also had to pack the whole thing in in cardboard to keep it dry and safe and to encourage all the bees to use the correct entrance."

Us girls like to pick where we build our homes we don't need men telling us where we should bring up our families.
