Mobile Bee Hive

Not a great picture, but I was leery of getting any closer. A swarm of bees have decided to create a hive under one of the bicycles in the long line of faded champions at Coco's Variety.

Mark, what do I do about this?


Coco's Variety neighbor and customer, Amy Seidenwurm responded to our panic call for emergency bee swarm removal! Lickity split quick, Amy had the bees under her spell and thy packed up for greener pastures where the flowers are dripping with nectar and hives are clean and commodious.

We owe you one, Amy!

Update II:

Amy posted about the swarm gathering experience at the Backwards Beekeeper site. Check it out to see much better, much braver pictures of the event!
