Previously, in Part One of Ben’s bee rescue project
On the evening of Saturday, June 4, People’s Food Co-op manager Chris Dilley notified Ben of a swarm of bees collecting in a spot that would be hazardous for bees, employees, and customers. Ben coaxed the swarm into a box and carried them home to the backyard at Fletcher House. Part One of Ben’s absorbing account of his concerns and the lengths he went to in providing a comfortable place for the bees to build their hive, takes us to June 7. Was he able to outfit the Warré Hive with everything the bees needed in time for them to survive a spell of unseasonably chilly days? And now… Part Two of Ben’s bee rescue project.
