How To Be The Keeper Of The Bees

Thinking of setting up a backyard hive?

Had 2 hives on our property back in the 90s. Everything
went well for several years, then some African bees invaded
the hives and the next time we went out to collect the honey
we had to make a mad dash back to the house chased by a swarm
of very angry bees. Had a professional collect the hives at
night. Thus ended my carrier as a bee keeper. Good honey though.

PS If you choose to do bees, keep a bottle of liquid benadryl

I am not but I do plant flowers for the bees. I am very bee friendly.

Everyone should bee. (sorry, had to) We do the same.
We have some great honey that is harvested from bees
that hang around Mesquite trees.
