Two special announcements today! The first is that our two new bee hives arrived this week. The pick up and transfer went well, and the day after their arrival I inspected both of them and was able to find the queens. (sigh of relief) Both hives were very crowded, so I added another deep super to each of them. I’ll continue to keep an eye on them and add a honey super at some point. In the meantime, I’ll enjoy the extra buzzing. 🙂 I intended to get video of the hive pickup day, but I forgot to put the memory card into my camera and didn’t realize it until we were almost an hour from home. Oops.
The second announcement is that I am launching something new on my YouTube channel called Bee Fun Friday! Just to give you a little background, my daughter is doing a research paper on the health benefits of bee products, and during her research she has been telling me lots of really interesting details about bees that I have never heard. I shared a couple of them on Facebook and had a commenter say that it would great to learn stuff about bees in bits and pieces like that. I agree! That would “bee fun!” So starting today (Friday) I have a video that has a very interesting thing for you to check out. You’ll have to watch to find out what it is. I don’t know yet if I will be doing Bee Fun Friday every week or just once in a while on a Friday. I’d love your feedback on that as we go along. Also, if you have any fascinating details or questions about bees, send me a message!
