Sharon

I have my share of worrying. Just take a look at some of my posts. I have meltdowns over these bees.
But what I meant was in this situation you are probably going to be fine, because they probably either have a queen or will have one soon.

We need each other to learn.

Have a wonderful evening.

Beekeeping is an amazing avocation. 

I think it teaches one about oneself.  That may seem trite but as I "hurry" to "worry" I realize different things.

'Tis true Mklangelo...I get all worked up sometimes...learning to "just relax" as so many here suggest!

Same here. Just when I think I have it all together, I have a meltdown. I am much better this year than last year. I have detached some, but I hate when I make stupid mistakes myself that could jeopardize the hive. I am to hard on myself. I will learn, I am learning.

Also in this situation with the pesticides, I really thought I had lost all the hives.

Have a great day,

So Sharon, how is the swarm doing?? do you need to add any more room for them??

Levels of frustration are directly proportional to the amount of emotional investment.
What is even more interesting is we as individuals choose what we let frustrate us.

Beekeeping requires a certain Zen to do it correctly.  You must be able to relax both mind and body and move slow and steadily to be effective.  Lack of Bee Zen results in more stings.

"Bee Zen", I love that!  It's true!  Until I learned to focus just on what I was doing, I got zapped a lot more than I do now.

Well girls I have to confess. I am a meditator now for over 30 years, so I should know better, but I still can get worked up over nothing.

It is a process that just continues.

My inlaws are in Fairfield Glade. Someday I guess we'll own that house - we'll be neighbors!  Smiley

Let me know when you get here, Tony and Reinbeau.  We'll visit!  Your bees will be able to make some of the best sourwood honey you ever tasted!

Okay so I am calling the swarm a colony now...we moved the hive to the "bee yard" about 60 or so feet using techniques from beemaster forum & MB...

They are going like  gangbusters.  I added a second deep which contains empty foundation with starter strip and honey super cell.  We'll see what happens...

There are still some bees at the old location...hhhmmm boo

Happy Easter/Spring/Day~*~*~
