I had to trim a rather large broken branch on one our our rose trees this evening. When I opened the trash can to put the branches in before hauling it out to the alley, all I saw was a mass of movement in it and bees starting to come out!

I closed the lid and backed away quickly. I was sure that I was going to get stung - repeatedly! I think I'm fortunate that it had started to cool down and the bees might not have been as active like they would have been in the warmer part of the day!

It took a while for my heart rate to slow down!

Someone is coming out in the morning. Hopefully, they can just move the colony and not have to destroy it.
