    That is so awesome. Do you do it just for fun or for the honey? This idea has always intrigued me. Would need a bigger yard than I have now though haha

    @Rocketcaver: I hope your new hives do well! I have heard that meaner bees are super productive, though I haven't been beekeeping long enough to know from experience =).

    @EverDave: Thanks! I mostly do it because I think it's very interesting and fun. The honey and beeswax are pretty great perks though! I definitely reccomend trying it out someday. Like CPs, it's addictive!

    Just today we drove through a swarm. It sounded funny, until we though about how many drones must have perished against our Ranger. Poor fellows!

    I used to have an empty feral hive. It was soo neat! I had it hanging in the old greenhouse, where it got lots of attention. Then, that winter, some marauding rodent ate it. Grrr!
