A bee colony under an old couch...resourceful little honey girls!

I love the way this beekeeper has used an old hollowed out log to house a colony of bees by adding a plastic busket to the inside to make it easy to remove honey comb with out destroying the hive.

Anatomy Of The Honey Bee

Here, the bees are rearing up two new queens in those cells- maybe their own queen is getting old. They always rear more than one "just in case".....but a colony can only have one queen. so when both emerge, either the workers choose one out and only feed their chosen queen, starving the other, or....they fight to the death.
