...ya lose. The neighbor who had the bees in the pecan tree called last week and said she had another "swarm" that was keeping her from her grapevines. I have been busy working trying to make money so I can affor dmy bee hobby, so I didn't call her back. I went yesterday to see the man about the bees in the gourd, and stopped by to check on the two other tree colonies. I asked the husband, who happens to be a farmer and part-time agricultural extension agent, about the current status of the bees. He said, " I know how to take care of bees. I sprayed 'em with Sevin. I can't have no bees around, 'specially when they bite the grandson." End of story.
