My bees enjoyed exploring it, looking for anything of value they could carry home honey, pollen, propolis. But I couldn't let the log stay intact. I wanted the comb, and I didn't want a new swarm deciding that would be a good place to live. So today the jigsaw came out.
The weather was just cool enough that only a few bees came by to see what I was up to.
Here's a little video of the log. (I also filmed the actual sawing. Wow, was that ever boring.)
Melting this stuff down will be another adventure, involving pantyhose, and pots from Goodwill.
