I just went to walmart this AM and there was a hearing device for about 15$ so I got one. I put it on to try it out ( my hearing is getting bad) and I COULD hear better but it was tinny.....So, I walked around the yard, seeing if I could hear birds and stuff and I did..Then I wanted to see if my bees would be louder, and they were! So, I took the device and stuck it in the entryway of one of the beehives!!..IT WAS GREAT!!! I had this thing turned up all the way and you could hear the bees just humming away and you could hear them land and take off! AWESOME!!! I sat out there for about 20 minutes listening!
Now, I need to figure out how to record this sound from the hives and put it on a disc or out here on the net!
