    Interesting place for honey bees to start a hive.

    In an abandoned back hoe. A friend called me a couple of months ago and asked me to come by and see if there was anything I could do to save the bees. I have been terribly busy and just yesterday had the opportunity to pay him a visit. Here's what I found:

    You can't leave us hanging there. What is the plan? Is there a rescue or eviction in the works?

    Lee, sorry, I intended to follow up a little later but my plan is to leave the bees alone until next spring. It is already too late in the year for them to rebuild / restock enough food for the winter. If they are still there mid to late March, I'll post a follow up of the "trap-out".
