One of our observation hives swarmed on Thursday and landed in a Honeysuckle Bush.
We did collect it and shook them into an empty log that had bees in it last year. I had put a piece of plywood on top of the log to keep the rain out so I drilled a hole out and put a sugar feeder jar on it. Hopefully the bees can build up with the help of the sugar syrup and maybe even get some honey and make it through the winter.
I had a large tour group in this morning of kids and parents and I just wanted to thank the parents for all of the exceptionally well behaved kids and a good job to the kids, as that makes giving the tour a pleasure instead of a “chore”!
