To Bee or Not to Bee?

...



Just as Robb and I were heading out to go have another stab at catching the bees in the Berkeley hills, the homeowner called to let me know that they bees had left the branch of her apple tree and had moved into my hive box.

Ah, how I love Lazy Beekeeping!

The photo is from the Berkeley Bee Garden, which is open to the public today!

how interesting - bees start out with immediate revenge, and then decides to cooperate:)

bees really are the most interesting animals:)

Hooray! I knew they'd figure out what was good for them. Mmm, warm cozy hive box!

See? All those stings in the ass for nothing. You could have just waited and they went in all by themselves. :)

Lazy swarm gathering is almost always the best way. But you are a total trouper! Next week, I'll be ready for my own swarms, so keep me in mind.
