Master Pest Patrol saves the bees. We have noticed a dramatic drop in bees in the Elk Grove area this year for the first time. Usually, only the outskirts of the city were affected. Many swarms are only the size of a softball now.
The Queen Bee and Female Workers
The average beehive contains some 30,000 bees! Most
of the bees are female workers. There is only one queen
per hive. With the high volumenous amount of bees, it
is difficult to find the queen. Many times novice beekeepers
mistake the oversized male drone for the queen. The
queen usually stays near the brood.

I find this type of a hive a few times a year. When bees form a hive outside a wall void or tree, they are called feral hives.
Bees will make their home in some wierd places! This beehive was probably in transition while looking for a permenant place.
