This week, we installed two beehives on the (outdoor!) third floor balcony of the library, overlooking the garden between the library and Town Hall. These bees will support the flowering plants in the garden, but don’t worry, they won’t come inside!
The installation of the beehives was fascinating to watch.
There were a lot of bees flying around, and they will continue to be active as they explore the area and learn about their new home; you can watch them come and go safely from behind the glass windows on the third floor.
Remember, honeybees are not aggressive by nature and will only sting if they’re defending their hive, or if they’re provoked. If you encounter a bee in the garden, don’t swat at it; it’ll bee on its way soon enough! (Pun intended.)
