A golden humming cloud of honeybees arrived unexpectedly one sunny June morning and moved into a knothole in the siding of the house. Three weeks later, Mr. E. helped these mysterious creatures into a comfy wooden box in his garden and began to live the lifelong dream of herding millions of stinging insects and collecting their sweet honey. Please enjoy the adventures of Mr. E's Mysterious Bees.

The swarm we caught on 30th and Church, The School Yard Swarm, is building this waxy barrier at the entrance to their hive. It is sunny and hot so I am not sure what they are up to. But they know best, so we'll leave them alone for now.
