We are headed into autumn with four hives, which is all I ever really wanted, but I had really hoped that Grand Kids Log hive would be among the survivors. It begs the question…are smaller hives better? I’m beginning to think so. I’ve thought about partitioning off the big log hive, but then there might be air flow issues. The birdhouse bees seem to deal with lack of air flow, so maybe it won’t be an issue. Right now I’ll let nature take it’s course and hope I can attract another swarm in spring.

This has nothing to do with bees, flowers, or gardening, but sometimes I just can’t help myself. This house was being picked up and moved to a location about a mile away. Since it’s on my morning walk and since I’m a curious type, I had to find out how they were going to do it.
