The Lincoln Log Bees aka The Breakout Queens finally managed to swarm to parts unknown. Good riddance. Those bees were ungrateful hobos. At any rate, we were left with an empty two-story lang hive full of pre-drawn honeycomb. We were hoping that a passing swarm would move on in. Alas, I guess the bee housing […]
