When You're Not Watching

In the spring, Kirk built up a pile of dirt and sod when making our garden. This fall he and Jerry put the dirt back into our garden, added the old dead grass as compost, and tilled it all up. As Kirk was taking some of the top layers of sod off of the pile, check out what he discovered!
Bees! Lucky for him, only a few flew out of the hive when he unearthed it.

Sadly, it was not a honey bee nest! Kirk promptly poisoned the hive, which had about 20 bees in it, and then had fun peeling the layers off to get a better view of the hive and cells. He was glad that it was a cold day so that the bees weren't too active.
