Wally Siebel, Pierrepont, recently discovered some unwelcome guests while remodeling an old farmhouse. In the outside wall he found an estimated 10,000 honey bees busy making combs. John Dragun, above, of Cranberry Lake, donned his protective gear to collect the bees, replacing bees that died over the winter in his own hives. Photo by Wally Siebel.
