[Wednesday] around 6 pm, a swarm of bees had gathered on a tree branch. The police and fire department were on hand, as well as a beekeeper.To give you an idea of the size, the branch was about 2 inches in diameter, but the bees appeared packed to 10 - 12 inches around it.The beekeeper carefully sawed the branch off, and was told he would put it in a box and take it with him to place in an apiary.
I grew up on this street. I love your blog. It is a piece of home I never get to see. Thank you.
Glad to read that the bees were saved. We need bees to pollinate pants. I just read that most of our food crops depend on bee pollination. In parts of China people are now hand-pollinating trees because there are no bees - viruses, pesticides, stress are killing them off. Here is a disturbing Newsweek article:http://www.newsweek.com/2008/06/14/stung-by-bees.html
