    Re: Good bee trees in Illinois?

    My neighbor actually has a crab apples, but I've never seen any bees on it at all. Hopefully I'll find smaller ones, but I haven't seen a buckeye here before. I'll look into the others, thanks!

    Re: Swarms around urban areas?

    Thanks! And do you think you could do the same thing without comb? Or could you buy a frame with wax foundation and then use the LGO in it too?

    Re: Bees favorite plant

    Has anyone tried Cornus sericea (red osier dogwood) or Japanese Dwarf Maple? I'm just looking for a small tree or shrub that I'd be able to move around in the future when I do get my own place.

    Oh okay, I'll take a look! I also changed my mind about getting Golden Rain since I read it was pretty invasive. Maybe Black Locust if it doesn't get too big.
