Re: duck dynasty bees
I remember capturing a hive like that. It was hanging down from the limb of a big tree... maybe 6 slabs of comb.. really a pretty big hive. I took the comb and wired it into some empty frame and the hive really took off... and if I remember correctly this was early sept. It turned into quite a strong hive.... believe it is still out there in one of the bee yards. I have no idea how old it was... probably just that season... but they might well survive the winter in in Coastal NC... or maybe not.
Veni, vidi, Velcro. I came, I saw, I stuck around.
