The hubby has been a beek for a couple of years now and since I haven't been able to beat it out of him - might as well join him
He is in California working and his bees and I are in Missouri. The weather was warm - by NW Missouri January standards three days last week - so I opened the hives and checked it out. He has seven hives at the farm - three from packages last spring and four ferral swarms. All were buzzing and seemed to be doing great. If I can figure out how to upload a picture I will!
My one big problem is getting stung - should my reaction to the sting become less and less over time? I have been stung three times and the reaction gets worse.
A quick shout out to the two Navy retirees or vets that were in the intro - I retired in 2000 and would love to go back to Rota!
