Honey Bees taking over nest box

This nest box at a NE TX farm got a late swarm of Honey Bees inside the box

and they were covering the whole box in late October..

 

This late March 2009 photo shows how mild of a winter we had because

normally it takes about 30 pounds of honey to winter over a large hive of

bees. This nest box has a 5x5 bottom and appears to be about 8" tall on the

inside of the box. Honey Bees were able to work flowers nearly all winter

this year in this area.
