Honey bees, proliferating in zones where
building has come to and abrupt stop
are more apt in this economic downturn
to produce velvety honey than in boom times.
Studies show that honey beens can read
forclosure sale signs at a distance of 600 yards
Then a cloud descends on the structure to
colonise the area and produce honey.
Fortunately for Tom, a local bee professional, he has been rubbing his
tummy in recent months: on call smoking
out the bees (he nicknames Sub-bees) and kidnapping the queens
to work at his own honey farm is part of his daily chores.
A single man who lives
in a trailer (he pays his rent in honey), licking his sticky
fingers he says: "this activity has been eentense lately an haven't got much sleep.
True, this single life is fine with me for the moment
but I'm waiting the day I git stung by a woman, have a house
an' settle down."
The bees that were contacted for this article refused to comment.
