Honey Bees in Chickasaw Gardens District, Memphis, TN

Chickasaw Gardens is a nice older part of Memphis with a lot of really cool homes. This home was in process of being sold when the honey bees were discovered. The plaster walls and ceiling made it a little difficult to locate the colony, but they were located in the dormer void above the window. They were removed and relocated to Germantown Farm Park.
