Saving bees in Douglas County

On a hot day in late spring, the Roseburg/Douglas County Bee Swarm Network responded to a call to remove a swarm of bees that had decided to take refuge in a small tree outside the Douglas County Museum. With no hive, the bees were dangling from a tree branch and clinging onto each other to form big clumps of yellow-and-black-striped bodies. The bees held onto one another with outstretched legs to form a bridge between the clumps.
