I just started with 2 hives in my backyard. First hive died off, so I replaced it with a swarm. I discovered a laying worker in the second hive, pulled out the drone comb, dumped the bees on the lawn and replaced it with a swarm. Hope to place some hives at my office next year. My profession is selling bread and rolls for Rhodes Bake-N-Serv. Looking forward to lots of bread and honey!
