Hi Everyone,I had a hive back in the 80s but something happened to it,i will never know. Now my son wanted to get into bee keeping and I said lets go for it.We just started in April but doing good. Our queen died three weeks ago or they killed her,so we bought an other and split the hive.We put the bought queen with half and put the queen cells with the other half.They both took off great.
  Well I'm 63 and love bees and my son does too.

Joelel. Welcome to our forum, wonderful that you have found us.  Wonder what happened to your bees, so long ago?  Things do happen, and sometimes we just don't know.  That is a beautiful thing that your Son wanted to get into bees and you both went for it.  You have been held deeply under the spell of the honeybee, we all are.  So many members here tell the tale of having kept bees years before, got out of it, only to return, that is the compelling nature of these little beauties.  Have fun with your Son.  I am sure that you can teach him many things about keeping the bees, beautiful.  This will be a place where you can tell your stories, tales and experiences -- to people who really do care, that will shine forth.  Stick around.  We love new members and love to listen and help.  So nice to hear that the colonies are flourishing.  Have that wonderful day, to love and it and live it, health.  Cindi

Hi Cindi,I think what happened to my bees in the 80s is,I went to the hive and there was nothing but fire ants there,think they drove them off. Well,my son is very smart and with all his being able to pick up things easy,he taught me a few things.

Oh John!!!  That is horrible.  I bet those ants would drive anything away from their home, hideous, the poor bees.  Have a great and most wonderful day, health.  Cindi

John,

Welcome to the group.  I live a bit south of you down in central texas.  Temperature here today will make it to 104 degrees.  I guess that global warming is finally catching on with mother nature.   Smiley   Your 80s experience reminded me that I have to do something in my bee yard about the fire ants.  They stayed away for the first couple of months but have now found the place. 

I hope that yoiu enjoy all the good folks here and the great information.

Hi,Maybe we can get together some time and say hi. The best thing i found for ants and all crawling insects is,put grease around the bottoms of all legs,then keep grass cut. Put it from ground up about 6 inches.
