honey bee nest in a tree



Have you ever seen a honey bee nest built a nest in a tree hanging from a limb?

We have a honey bee nest about 12″ x 18″ about 50 ft. up in a tree.

    Yes I do see hives like this from time to time. The weather here in San Diego is very good for honey bees.

    It doesn’t seem to me to be very sensible to build a honeycombs in such a position, but the bees often do things which puzzle me. I really can’t see how bees in such a position can defend themselves against wasps, hornets and other predators. It must also be very difficult to regulate the temperature of the hive.
