My Adventure in bees...day one

I picked up my hive today just before sundown when they had all gone in for the night. I got them home and put the honey super on with all the frames. It's dark now and I'm putting this together with my Dad holding the flash light. I didn't smoke the hive or have any protective clothing on and only got stung once. I think that was because she was on my vest and I brushed my hand aginst her. The temp was in the 50's and a 99% full moon.

  1. Thanks Lisa. I guess I was kinda foolish for not smoking them but I figured since it was night they would be at rest and calm. I think they were for the most part.

  2. This is going to be exciting to hear about your adventures with honey and the bees. Maybe we will have to make an exchange....some cheese for some honey??
