Remember the 50's bee equipment thread from Crazy where I picked up the equipment? They contacted me this morning to tell me they rolled a log over in their yard and found honey bees and comb on the bottom of it. Ironic turn of events huh? Anyway, my bee learning so far would have me believe bees do not nest in the ground. So, I asked them some clarification questions: Sure they are honeybees? Are they coming and going from the log like it's an airport? Are they carrying yellow/orange pollen on their legs? They answered every question with a yes. However, they believe half of the nest is in the ground and other in the log???? Is this possible or do you think they are seeing some type of ground nesting bees? Do ground nesting bees carry in pollen and build comb like honeybees? I did not have time to over there but they sent some pics. The pics are not the best but I have attached them below. If I determine these are honeybees, I am bringing that stump home and keeping in the bee yard until spring.
