Oh wait, not that honey bee, but it is a fun song!
Our honeybees made it through the winter! We really thought they were gone after 2 warm weeks past with no action, but we saw them for the first time on May 31st.
The bees moved in 4 or 5 summers ago and each year they go to work pollinating our plants and making honey for the winter. The only downfall is that they live in our garage wall. We don’t harvest the honey, but hope to one day remove them from the wall and put them into hives.
I can only imagine what that hive looks like on the inside…
I’m sure the damage to the wall is great, but the benefit for the garden is even greater. You won’t find us killing these bees, ever. We work right under their hive and although they come out and fly around, we’ve never been stung.
Do you know anyone with beehives? Any bee advice?
