For as long as I can remember, honey bees have been invading our house. They usually dispatch a small squad, and two or three get into the house so that I have to swat them (which I dislike doing). Well, I've come to realize what they have been up to! It appears that their colony has grown to the point where they want to split off and start a new colony. GUESS where they think they are moving to? Our back yard! Daniel took these photos this morning.
This is up in the top of Daniel's tool shed. This computer box seems to be the perfect "hive".. small opening, lots of room inside.
That was this morning. Now it is afternoon, and the number of bees out there has at least quadrupled, and the buzz is almost deafening!
H - E - L - P ! !
I don't know how to be a beekeeper, but I think they are adopting us!
