A little side note...these are pictures of a tree in our back yard, a swarm of bees moved out of their hive,
A "beeman" was called and he dressed all in white, evidently white doesn't upset the bees. Very gently he moved the majority of them into a box he brought, and said by morning every bee would be in there. And he was right except for maybe 2 lost souls. He took the box and away they went to a new home. He said there were probably 30, 000 bees in this swarm, when they get too numerous, they split, and swarm elsewhere.The original swarm will have 3 or so new queens "born? and the first born will eliminate the others. The tree was humming, very exciting but weird, I have never seen anything like this. Awesome. We stood out there a long time watching and they never bothered us.
Actually this was about 4-5 years ago, I was looking for some "good" pictures of my garden and ran across this! So I am sharing.
