A normal afternoon turned quickly into carefully sifting through a large trash pile.
Scoping out the situation it appeared to be a swarm coming from a very near and very tall old tree.
The neighbors said the swarm initially was found clustering on a low branch behind the pile of discarded items. A young boy walking by picked up a stick and hit the ball of honeybees to knock them off, and that is what lead to their interest in the trash pile.
Entwined in and around broken children’s toys, curtains, spouting, styrofoam cups, aluminum cans, glass bottles, cardboard boxes, pieces of old electronics, car parts and so on… there were about four pounds of bees looking for a new home.
Just a few pictures to share…
