From an email:

“I am an officer of the Mountain Bike Tac Team of the second district of the metropolitan police department in Washington, D.C. We are starting a new initiative on the first Saturday of every month called the “Orange Helmet Patrol” in which we incorporate a community bike ride with our team and anyone interested to ride with us. I would like to extend a personal invitation to join us this Saturday May 3rd from 12-1 at 3320 Idaho Ave NW. All skill levels and age ranges are welcome to join.”


Last week we learned that if you see a bee swarm, don’t panic call the DC Bee Keepers. And that’s exactly what one gardener did at the Newark Street Community Garden in Mclean Gardens. I was walking by on Saturday and one gardener explained to me that when a hive gets too big another queen is spawned and they take half the hive:


The swarm was set up just outside the established hive. Sadly I didn’t get the gardener’s name but on the Cleveland Park listserve they say: “Two members of DC Beekeepers Alliance, Kate McLynn Andrew Hullinger, carefully collected the swarm and gave them a hive to live in.”

Also gotta give props to the gardener as he set up a peremiter around the swarm and was super concerned about their welfare. Glad it all worked out for these guys:


And remember – if you see a swarm call (202) 255-4318.
