  3. Re: Make 15 year old help with sideline business?

    In 3 years he will be legal so I think that this is warm up time. It is good that he spoke up. He will be calling lots of shots in less than 3 short years.

    Re: Neighbors destroying colonies

    I hope that this works out okay. My first instinct would be talking with my neighbors and trying to see why they would spray my bees and then go from there. If that wasn't an option involving the...
  8. Re: Speaking of bee attacks...what could you do?

    If I don't have a veil I put my hands over my face. Getting stung around the eyes or face in general is terrible. Bees can fly faster than you can run but getting away from the source of the bees is...

    Re: Unusual behavior?

    Re: Are these swarm cells?

    I only see capped drone cells and worker cells. I think you are okay. The queen cells will look more exaggerated and stick out like the tip of your pinky sticking out.
