Musings on Beekeeping: Musings on Bees in the Cemetery

I went for a walk the other Sunday to stretch my legs with Scooter, my dog. Of all the possible routes we could have taken, I decided to head for the town cemetery. I wanted to also go looking for some stingless bees. The cemetery is a good place for this.

The older mausoleums begin to deteriorate and crack, so it gives the bees a place to enter the tombs. Most are small native stingless bees but occasionally you might find a colony of Africanized bees.

Also go to my Facebook page for my blog, Musings on Beekeeping, and “like it”.

wow, that's a great bee area.

I know of a bee tree in a cemetery a few miles from my house. No mausoleum in that graveyard, but the tree has ben busy for years.
