    I was cleaning some weeds from around a well head in mid September and cutting down tree branches hanging over the power line to the pump when I heard her coming. Now I've never been afraid of bees but this one sounded like a little jet fighter and it made me a little nervous, but there she was, with roughly the same body size as a cicada. I was impressed and hoped that queen would make a home somewhere on my property. Ive always liked bumble bees since Ive been little and its just fun to say bombus I wish the queens didn't make a new nest every year otherwise I would set about rearing nothing but bumbles.
