And the train kept rolling

Remember the railroad-tie bees? Well, Kirk and I headed up to Solano Garden, where they'd been parked, to pick them up and give them a new home.

Here's Kirk's ant-barrier system that protects his bees.

Kirk used window screen and duct tape to seal up the tie for transportation.

This is like Christmas for me.

Here are the bees in their new Silver Lake home. Once they've had a while to orient themselves, we'll undertake a cut-out to get them into a proper hive box.
