The other day at work, these bees swarmed in and took over the beltoader in less than an hour. The bees were safely removed by a bee keeper. This did cause quite a bit of excitement on the ramp!!

Thank you Royce.

I took my camera to work that day to take a few plane pictures and got this instead.

there was alot of worry and anticipation of the africanization of our indiginous honey bees. it has already happened here in southern california. however, the hybrid turned out to be much more docile than the original african species. thank goodness!

Amazing how they congregated here so quickly. Was there a reason for them taking to the belt? Oh, nice shots too!...........Don

Thank all for the comments.

Noone seems tohaveany idea why they decide to make the beltloader their home. What the picture does not show is on the under side of the belt is about is about the same number of bees as on the outside.
