    A few pics of feeding the bees in a tree. These were the bees that wer 80 feet in the air.

    Cut the broken limb off on the side and nailed a couple of boards on for the winter protection, then cut the top off and nailed on a board with a hole in it and some shingles, and you will notice a shingle on the side to partially cover up a large knot hole.

    They drank a quart of syrup in one day and a quart of honey in three days
