So glad you called a beekeeper instead of having someone spray and kill them. The bees had swarmed and looking for a new place. Actually the honey bee won’t sting you unless you make it mad. 😠

How do we get in contact with Pete??

Much respect to those trying to save the bees! Keep up the good work
