LocustHoney. You said something in a prior post about "a stupid question". Nope, there is no such thing as a stupid question on this forum. Always remember....ask any question that you want, no matter if in your own mind you think it dumb. No so.
Look what you have done, yea!!! You have now 8 hives, you have instilled a love of the bees with your two children, that is so wonderful. They will be your helpers, they will be your extra eyes. They will spot any swarms (hopefully there won't be any, hee, hee) that may issue from your colonies. It is amazing what 4 extra eyes can do around a place, hee, hee, :) :)
Good, now you have these little farmhands that will carry on with this love of the bees that has become a part of your life, yea!!! Have a great and wonderful day, Cindi.
I love that song "Teach your children well." (I don't like the second sentence in it though, :roll: ;) :) Remember that one? By Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young
