Darkness falls across the land.
The midnight hour is close at hand.
Predators crawl in search of blood.
To terrorize your bee neighborhood.
When you don’t clean your blocks each fall.
Your bee house will be full of creepy crawls.
Pollen mites, chalkbrood and Houdini fly.
Will sit in slumber until your bees fly high.
Your bee house turns into a predator hotel.
And harms each mason bees mothers cell.
So clean your nesting material and wash your cocoons.
To protect your bees and future broods.
