Sorry I have not posted for awhile.
Saturday, I spent the day in Chester County at a bee conference.
Sunday I spent the day working on the PennApic Environment Action Committee agenda combined with a 4 hour meeting.
Monday, I spent the bulk of the day preparing and visiting the Governor's Mansion in Harrisburg, where PennApic will be installing a full working apiary, so all visiting dignitaries and visitors to the Governors residence will be exposed to bees.
Yesterday, I had way too much to do, and then swimming classes last night, letters to write to sponsors of national honey Bee Day, etc.
I wanted to check my bees. I really did. I guess if they swarmed over the past few days, I'll just be called lazy and a bad beekeeper. I didn't get any phone calls, so I think I'm safe for now.
Boy...I only wish I had time to visit every hive more often.
Thank you to all the beekeepers who seem to live in the same busy world as me, and were supportive. Busy just like me, with little many things going on. But not too busy to make that farmer happy by responding to a call, so the bees do not go in the neighbors barn. I might not stop all swarms, but I will respond to my property owners to keep them happy.
