    Default Hive on a tree branch-



    I had a hive get attacked by wax moths. The moths made a mess of most of the frames, but luckily I think the bees and the queen absconded to a nearby tree in my yard. And it's only 7 feet off the ground!

    I'll box them later this week. Kind of neat to see a natural hive.

    That is pretty cool. Careful though. 7’ fall can still hurt.



    Haven’t heard from you in a while. How did the requeening of that hot hive go?
    Chuck Norris has a grizzly bear carpet in his room. The bear isn't dead it is just afraid to move.
