DD's have yet Another hive in their house. They have been putting it off, but the guy that is fixing their back porch is a mason, and he Wants to tuck point pretty much the whole house, which is a 1920's brick.
That's how the bees are getting in.
Last time the bee guys were able to replace a hive that was lost in the winter with a very vigorous new one. Vigorous bc it had been living in a house!!!!
