There's much to see here.
there is nothing more magical than seeing bees as they fly into the hive arena... and IN SLOW MOTION.. well, that IS thrilling ~
there is always much activity when introducing a new hive box/added 'floor' to their housing ~
so many people THINK that bees DO NOT NEED water WELL THEY DO 1. for themselves to DRINK
2. to fan the hive - we supply water from a drum on the truck bed via hose to the drum on the site with a float.. to moderate water level... Rock for landing pad...
Erika walks with her 'entrouage' of ladies.. when INSIDE the suit the sound of the bees AROUND and ON the veil is electrifying.... aside from the heat inside if on a hot day of bee duty ~
Watching the search for pollen is always exciting ~ seeking the source of THEIR BEE BREAD / THEIR PROTEIN crucial to their survival ~
ONE NEVER KNOWS how the bees will react ~ or what set them off ~ be prepared and have humour ~ one is allowed to swear like a sailor or simply bite the bullet :) as it too shall pass....
