The Latest Buzz

The bees are here!  This is as close as I am getting to the box for now until I learn more

A while back I posted about a swarm of bees that were in my tree.  I didn't know what to do about it back then.  I posted a picture on facebook.  A friend from church asked me if I wanted to borrow a bee box from her husband.  I was afraid to because I didn't know what to do with it.  After we got to talking, we realized that I had the bees and the space on my property.  She and her husband had all of the equipment but couldn't practice their hobby any longer because they now live in the village..

My bees buzzed away.  It seems people sometimes call her husband to get rid of their bees but he hasn't been able to do it because of space restrictions.  We quickly put our heads together and decided the next time he got a "bee" call that he would go get them and set them up at our house.  It's our little co-op.  I have been interested in bees for quite a while.  This is a great way for me to learn!  YEAH.  I'm so excited!
