    Default I fooled my grandchildren!

    My grandchildren thought I was building a treehouse for them.



    Little did they know that I was actually making a stand for swarm traps!!!

    Boy, are they going to be upset! You did good on all accounts! Hey, do the bees enjoy the swings?

    I'm remembering that beemandan is the guy who claims there are no feral bees in his neck of the woods. This must mean he is planning to catch swarms from his own colonies. :O

    Sad but true. If you look at the second photo you can see some of my hives between the house and treehouse. That and there are several other beekeepers in the area. I am under no illusions.

    Heck...having bees in the yard seems to be a pretty effective deterrent...even when you don't want it. The FEDEX delivery guy says he is allergic and doesn't want to come up my driveway, even though the hives are a couple of hundred feet away. Whenever I order stuff that may come FEDEX, I have it sent to my neighbor's house.
