Response to Arkansas Granny (Reply #5)

7. That is a wonderful story!

I am going to try to locate the hive, just so I can watch it. I have an old walnut tree that is half dead. Almost all the way dead actually, that sits right on the bank of the pond. I think when we had the flood in 2007 it just about finished it off. Anyway, it had two large sections of branches and one came off during a wind storm a couple of years ago. I left it on the ground for the critters. The still standing half is pretty bad. There are numerous old bird holes where there has been nesting. It is pretty close to where I saw them so I am wondering if they would nest there. Anyway, my best guess. I probably should study up on them a little more.

As long as they are around and look healthy I will leave them to it.

Please let us know how the bees settled in. That is so nice. I am glad to hear they are bouncing back. We need them.
