|I had bees taking up residence in a big pot underneath a bird bath; I would loved to have kept them unfortunately it's right next to my driveway -- not a good place. The beekeeper came this morning; smoked the bees to move them to a hive he brought. They're settling in and he will come back when it starts to get dark to take them away. The first one is the bird bath with the pot underneath where the bees had set up; the beekeeper smoking them before moving; then moving them into his hive (look at all the honeycombs) and the last one is the hive in my garden, temporarily. The birdbath boy is looking very forlorn !|

|BEAUTIFUL honeybees and comb with a nice brood pattern. Thank you Elfie for calling a bee keeper to move them. Today was my lucky day as we found a swarm has set up housekeeping in one of my empty hive boxes. I am so very thankful and excited. I LOVE having honeybees. |

|Thank you for using some sense and calling the right professional!|
People need to wise up and help the poor bees, they've fed us for a long time, and we're repaying them by wiping them out...
Shame you couldn't keep them, we had to move a hive recently too, it was alot of fun to have around but with kids around... 5' from the back door didn't seem like the best spot...
Please tree mail me for trades, I'm ALWAYS actively looking for more new plants, and love to trade!
