Re: Free hanging hive off of a tree branch
I was fortunate enough to get a hive like this several years ago. They were a thriving hive out in the open under a limb of a live oak tree. I hived them and they promptly didn't make it through the winter. It was worth it just to see it. In hindsight I wish I had not gotten them and let them die out over the winter on the tree. I would have gotten that section of limb with the comb and hung in in my house for a decoration (after I won the argument over it with my wife, of course!!!)
When you stop learning you're dead.
