Jungle, where is my machete?

I got a call from a construction company.  They were going to start work on a house and found two abandoned hives in the back yard.  He neglected to tell me that the yard hadn’t been cut for over 2 years and the weeds and grass had grown to over 8 feet high.  The shortest weeds came to mid thigh!  We got there and were amazed at the jungle we found in the middle of the city.  Penny said we should get a machete to get to the bees.  We found two hives, one was dead the other was going well.  We moved them to a much better spot.
