This post was just sitting not being published from weeks ago.  

bees and eggs and trees and strawberries now too.  this is so much fun.  

The sad news is the new hive Andy and Piper caught ended up having a huge bunch of them die.  they were in the bottom of the hive until i got Andy to get them out, he unstapled the bottom and let them fall out.  NOW the alive sisters are all happy.  And working as they should without having to remove thousands and thouands of dead bees.  Andy didn’t get time yet to install the inside the hive feeder so they are still using the big outside feeder.
