    Re: Why I keep bees...

    I decided to keep bees because I love honey and nature. I feel like a detective every time I look in the hive, trying to figure out what they're doing and why. It's also pretty fun to see people's...

    Re: who has Bee Quick ?

    I got a bottle from Blue Sky Bee Supply about a week ago, but I know they were almost out. Simpson's Bee Supply also had some at that point, but again I'm not sure if they still do.

    I'm just a newbee too, but in only a few months I have learned that my girls HATE the bee brush. Not sure if this is the "brushing" that you're talking about or not. I've had good luck just using...

    Thanks! I started them in 2 boxes because at a class I went to they said that one medium would bee too small a space to start them in. Seeing it for myself, I'd say one medium would be fine, so...
  14. Whoops... how should I fix my mistake?

    Almost a month ago I hived 2 packages into 10 frame mediums. I started them in two mediums each, but I wasn't thinking (maybe it was all the bees buzzing in my face :) ) and I shook the bees and put...
