Where has the time gone? 2 months since my last blog post… holy cats.
Quick update: we installed 6 new packages of bees into Langstroth hives at 3 other locations, did a tear-out of a feral hive that was 4′ by 4′ and 18″ deep (that was crazy!) and I did my first swarm catch… SOLO! I have pictures and stories to go along with all of it and I promise to get to it as soon as I can.
Besides hands-on bee work, I have been busy speaking to groups ranging from kindergarten to adults about bees, beekeeping and the necessary and vital role bees play in the ecosystem. I have had groups come out to our home to tour the hive, getting the kids up close and personal with our wonderful ladies.
In the next week or two, I will make sure to upload photos and give you all the details of the installs, catches and tear-outs. It has been an amazing, lower stress few months, but the bees have been quite demanding, so that has taken up all of my available time~ but I am happy to do it! :o)
