The Bees Sure Know What They Want

It’s been 6 days since we spotted Swarm No. 2 but how long had it been there before we noticed it is anyone’s guess. Day after day I’ve been watching it closely hoping that the “scouts” would persuade the Queen-bee to move to the Swarm Box a.k.a. Hivingham Palace.

Alas (or should I be filled with glee?), I think they’ve made their decision to live in a Treehive about 25 feet above ground level.

... still up on the tree today.

… still up on the tree today.

How did I come to that conclusion? Well, the wind & rain calmed down today and while the workers were out gathering food, I actually saw a comb.

a tree comb!

a tree comb!

Is their comb safe on the tree? Will it get heavy and fall off when filled with honey and larvae? I guess Mother Nature will show me how she works on things.

Now, there are 2 Swarms of Bees in our front yard!! :mrgreen:
