The Bees are Back!
Here we are again. All the familiar feeling; excitement, nervousness are back once again. I'm happy to be able to bring more bees home.
We've gone with a new type of bee, Italian Bees....fitting don't you think? However this was purely by accident. The Carniolan variety we had before had problems with their queens this year. This is a problem we didn't want to take on; if you remember our problem with our queen in the past. You can read about it here: http://healthyappetitesllc.blogspot.com/2013/08/queen-bee-drama.html?m=1
It's such an amazing sight.
This bee is covered in powdered sugar. They are sprinkled in sugar before being placed into the hive to rid them of mites.
With crossed fingers and a leap of faith, will begin another bee journey. I'm excited to chronicle this here to share with you.
