I was at a customers house today and we were talking about gardening. I got him into it last year. He took me to his front door and he had an enormous bee swarm. it was easily 5 times the size of mine. he said they had been there a few weeks already. you could see the comb. it looked very healthy. his neighbors want it gone but luckily he is going to contact a beekeeper in the area and try to get it down. Fortunately for the bees its on the second story, unfortunately for the guy getting it down it will not be easy. He is going to call me when the guy comes so I can watch and learn.
