Hi all, does anyone here have the African honey Bee? we here at the Double K have 4 hives of them. After 2 years of working them, I have come to the conclusion that they have gotten a bad rap. I really enjoy them and we have very little maintance with them. No mites, no beetles, and no other pest bees around. They reproduce quickly and produce honey quickly its june 4th and we are preparing for our second pull next week.
we pull bloom to bloom here our last pull was apple and this will be clover. Yes you have to wear a suit and smoke them but there resistance to diasease is well worth it. if anybody else out there has them would love to hear from you. Kevin n Kelly the Double K
