Swarm Of Bees Moved
While having my morning coffee I looked out the window and saw a swarm of bees hanging from a bush in our yard. I didnít want to kill the bees because weíve heard there are shortages due to diseases, but I didnít want them around my place either. I called a beekeeper, Kirk Sewing of Taylor Springs, Ill., who showed up with bee hive ďsupersĒ. He placed one under the cluster of bees, cut the swarm so it fell onto the super, and then covered it up. He let it stand until all the worker bees came back at night and then closed the bee entry so he could transport it back home. Kirk was glad to get the new bees because many of his bees had died from winterkill. So, if you ever find a big swarm of bees, donít kill them. Call a beekeeper. (C.F. Marley, Nokomis, Ill.)
