Received a call from a Sunnyvale resident regarding bees in their recycle bin. Her husband flipped the lid open and there might be only like 50 or so bees left. When I heard that I thought ok, maybe the bees decided to leave. Well, when I got there it was much more than that. It was maybe 50 bees flying near the top. She was afraid to get close for a peek. Inside was a huge cluster all plastered onto the wall of the recycle bin because the lid was opened. You’ll see the comb section they have started to build.
A good sized swarm moved into this recycle bin.
And here’s our queen.
Thanks for calling to save our local honeybees!
