Honey Bees

Do you know what this is, Dear Reader?

It is not a bee smorgasbord, despite appearances.

Honey Bees

I can't wait to tell you the whole store.

Tomorrow.

  1. It is interesting that you have bees on your hummingbird feeder. We sometimes get them, sometimes not. Someone told us to make sure to remove the yellow “flowers” they put on the plastic feeders – but even without those sometimes we still have some. Of course, sometimes we have hummingbirds and sometimes not too – varies from year to year.

  3. My husband and I got into beekeeping with our son.
    We feed them sugar water in the spring after they come out to give them a boost. Bee’s aren’t the bad ones, the “predators” (wasps hornets and yellow jackets) are. If you research bee’s they are the most fascinating creatures ever! BTW there are some predators in the pic. they like to rob the bees.
    The bee population is dying very quickly the last few years. The reasons are still unknown. If they continue, they will be extinct by 2030.
    I know they promote fear, but really bee’s don’t bother you unless you wave your arms and stuff. I have 10 hives of approx. 25,000. each (yes, that would be a quarter of a million bee’s) 40 yards from our play area. The wasps are so much worse!
