There was a time when "kill 'em all!" was the default position on unwanted creatures. I'll thae stories like this as a sign of progress.

Cool. That is not too far from here...well, at least I've heard of the town.

I'd read a while back about a hive of bees in someone's walls. They removed an enormous hive and quantity of honey. Actually, I think I saw it on the news a few years back.

At 1st when I saw the title.... I thought... finally.... somebody's picking up on all the slashing and burning going on in our wilds known as prescribed burns but uh uh.... it was about bees!!! Pretty cool reading this article! I'm glad someone took in the bees.
