Bee keeping for my honey

This is in response to a request to keep the bee line updated. A short video of checking how the spring started hive is doing in July. Quite well it appears.

Funny as I’m reading this my wife is telling me the neighbors 2 hives were destroyed by a bear a few nights back. 60,000 bees gone.

Ouch! There are some bears around, but I’ve never even seen any signs of them in my wanderings. Going on a hope and a prayer.

She’s not scared of the bees… I don’t think I could go out there barefoot in shorts and a tshirt. :dizzy_face:

Nice Pepe.
Someday I want bees. Have you seen this?


Interesting Bill! Although it does have some critics.

There’s good arguments in that article but then again, I know nothing abut bees. I won’t be ready for bees for a while. From my understanding I can ‘foster’ some hives but haven’t looked into that either.
I guess the Flow Hive will have to stand the test of time. From a new guy’s eyes, it sounds like a great concept.

Thanks Bill, that’s a great idea. I wonder what the cost of a unit is.

Hi Chris,
She says she’s never been stung. I did take my suit off and stand next to her for a bit afterward. The bees don’t seem to mind. I’m not selling my suit yet, though!
