Bee hunting!

Recommended Posts

Honey is the nectar of the God's.

Have a friend that has a few hives next to his blueberry fields and the honey is awesome.

I might be persuaded to barter predator elimination for honey.

I had a airborne swarm come in, about 8:50 in the morning,  A couple weeks ago while cutting the lawn. I drove right into the middle of them in hopes of dropping them on a close branch. That wasn't working, so I ran in to get the chainsaw; they just wouldn't  drop. ( First time in 40 years, I couldn't make a swarm lite on a limb.)  They headed west into the neighbors property. It's like watching a 100 dollar bill fly away


Another swarm,in the picture, took up residency in an undesirable spot.

A swarm of bees in June, is worth a silver spoon.

Happy to say I got a second silver spoon today. The swarm trap I put up on Monday has a very active swarm setting up residence in it this afternoon. I’m feel like I’m off to a good start for a new bee keeper.
