The ash tree in our front yard got colonized by a bee swarm yesterday afternoon. I don't particularly freak out about bees or even bee swarms, but the assemblage was hanging almost over the public sidewalk and I thought the rest of the neighborhood might object. I was also a little worried that some of the young neighborhood kids might decide to do the Rock Test on the swarm. (Rock Test, as I recall it from my own misspent youth: "There's something unusual over there. Let's throw a rock at it and see what happens.")
I was hoping the swarm would decide to move on after a night's rest, but no such luck. So I had a bee service come out to remove it earlier today. Sorry, bees.
