Farm bees...

I was by the farm this afternoon for a few minutes and noticed lots of honey bees on the flowering bushes. I noticed 3 stripes and the dark bees usually associated with feral bees. I'm not sure if the 3 stripe lighter colored bees are feral or there's a beekeeper in the area. I was considering putting a few hives there next year made up with splits or packages but may just put out some swarm traps over there in the spring to see what I can catch then hive them. I plan to go back this weekend when I have more time and look around some more.
