    Default Bee Crossing

    Perhaps one of those "Bee Crossing" signs would be appropriate along that section of the highway? Glad you caught a swarm! And...by the way...we all know you wouldn't run over bees on purpose!

    they seem to be italians, just wondering if they came from the same feral hive my original swarm i captured 3 years ago came from, i live in town and i know there's no beek's anywhere near me.
    And no i'd never run em over on purpose, freaked me out bad, especially when the one hit me in the chest and splatterd everywhere.Almost turned around to see if i could follow em, but knew they'd be long gone, hope i didnt get the queen.Yikes
