My interest in beekeeping stems from the invasion of my Eastern Screech Owl house by a little swarm of honeybees in May 2012. I figured beekeeping would be an interesting empty-nest project and that it would be cool to build some hives and tend bees.
Two years later and two Warre hives later, my husband and I hived two packages of honeybees from BeeWeaver Apiaries.
The posts in the drop down menu, beginning with Beam Me Up, Scottie! chronicle our experiences with beekeeping–the good, the bad, the sweet (and the sticky)!
My introductory post about beekeeping, Beam Me Up, Scottie!, was written before we hived our honeybees.
