    Had a call from a young lady saying they had a ball of bees on a fence post and another on the ground. I went to look, and found about 25 bees on the post and another 75 or so on the ground. Maybe a half cup, total. It would have been a total wasted trip except for one BIG thing. When I got there, father and daughter pointed to the post where they were. They wouldn't go over to it. They wanted them gone before they killed all the horses.

    Before I left, both were picking up bees and placing them on the landing board. The young lady even took a sting while picking one up and laughed about it. The PR more than paid for the trip. :D

    I set them next to another hive and will dump them out in front of it in the morning, for them to join it. Happy convertees, safe bees = Good trip.

    I run into the same thing every day. People watch too many movies. Good job on the PR.
