The Bee's Knees

Had an interruption from "real life" to deal with thousands of honey bees that are trying to find a new home in my house. What you see in this photo is just the tip of the iceberg!

When you open that little gray door, there are THOUSANDS of bees, about one cubic foot of honey bees.

We called a beekeeper, who was flabbergasted, and is going to help them find a new home, hopefully in one of his hives.


Unfortunately, he was not able to get the queen, but he is still hoping they will move into this box, so he can move them to his place of business.

They have temporarily moved the entire swarm to a tree in the yard next door. 

I find their behavior very interesting, but would rather watch a documentary on IMAX. Observing their behavior in my kitchen and basement has been a little unsettling...
