    What amazes me is where a hive can be found or should I say discovered. I remember hearing in the news once about a guy who pushed his lawn mower over top one not knowing that it was there in the first place. Things did not go well for him in the end.

    God bless you and his family always!!!

    P.S. A wasp nest was recently found up underneath one of the window shutters of my house.

    I'd like to know what that thing was I let live yesterday. Shaped like a bee with a shiny dark-green thorax and a black body.

    Wild honey bees are endangered because of an introduced species almost microscopic mite. I gave up raising bees ten years ago because they had to be medicated with strips that you hang in the hive. Maybe it's easier these days. When I first started with bees I read the books and I thought they would crawl into the hive once the package was opened. They crawled everywhere but the hive including up my pants leg until they settled down. The stings aren't bad.

    I have honeybees, but they didn't make their own hive. Do they even do that anymore?
