Island Bees

Still get surprised

Even after almost 19 years I can still be surprised. A woman called on Saturday evening and said she had bees in her bush. I asked the standard questions, like how long have they been there, how big is the group. She said they had been in this bush for at least 4 days, her gardener saw them and told her they would go away, but they didn’t. I got there the next morning and found a full swarm. I shook them into the nuc and found this little bit of comb.
