    Last fall, about November, Jacobs and I went on a call of a bee tree down. The people had cut a large dead walnut tree and found the bees when it hit the ground. We cut it at each end of the comb and gave it to Brandon0101. He propped it up in the original orientation and left it for the winter. Today, we cut them out.

    Nice work! That is a mighty impressive hollow limb/bee abode.

    It still amazes me how you guys can wear no gear when you are hacking apart the bees' home. Swarms, okay. Inspections, maybe. But home destruction? Give me a suit!
