I sent my daughter to the backyard to get something and she came back in and said, there is a bee out there. She's got a terrible fear that every single bee is out to get her, so she steers clear of them. So, out I went to retrieve the thing and while picking it up I heard a ton of buzzing. We've had a lot of flies lately and thought it was just a bunch close to head, but then I thought, "that sure is loud for flies!". I looked up toward the top of a very old shed in the backyard and saw the image below. I'm wondering, is this a swarm just hanging out for a few days or possibly bees that have found a new permanant home? I'm tempted to just leave them bee especially with all the recent bee decimation around the US. If we decide to have them removed I'll definitely bee looking on craigslist for local bee peeps to try to relocate them. Maybe it is time for me to get into beekeeping?
