My first bee rescue, I hope I can get them through the winter.
Yesterday I was called to come and look at a problem a guy had with some honey bees. He had cut a tree and found that it was occcupied when he was cutting it into sections. I retrieved the section with the bees and got them home. I am going to leave the bees in the section of the tree until spring. My question is, Should I try and figure a way to feed them ? If so , what would be the best way to do so. The reason am asking is when I got to the site I saw several yellow jackets around the tree as well an thought that there may have been some robbing going on. I hope they survive, they were very calm and easy to work around.
I'll try and get some pics. posted later.
What we have here, is a failure to communicate !
