no lack of bees around here

tonybeeguyJune 15, 2007

We have no lack of bees around here in western Mass. There are countless different types pollinating the flowers in our yard. On monday we got a call to remove some honeybees that had taken up residence in a soffit, and today someone called me about a willow tree that crashed through one or their pasture fences. They were going to remove it but it was full of honeybees. All I had handy was a medium super of drawn comb so I scooped up some bees from the biggest cluster and placed them on a frame and the others proceeded to follow. If Y'all want to see bees you're welcome to come to Massachusetts

Well, ship a few to me in Maine - I want to start a hive or 3 anyway!

Would you like them in one container or individually packaged?
