    Here I am setting at the beach til tomorrow and a neighbor calls me. Says he has a swarm of my bees going into one of his owl houses. I told him my bees have blue collars and Miksa's bees have red ones. He said as far as he was concerned they were blue and laughed. I told him I'd be there tomorrow.

    Ask him if he will build you a dozen more of his "owl" swarm traps.

    My new assistant in my bee suit. I had the greatest time teaching her. That's her husband hiding in the back.
