Hopefully more people will become organic gardeners and plant plenty of bee friendly crops and flowers. Here is a picture my daughter took of a wild hive in a tree that was blown over during a recent storm along the trail where she and her friends ride their mountain bikes. The colony has since moved from the fallen tree. She said it looked like they were dismantling the combs (to reuse the wax maybe? Do they do that?)
