.....you can't put your car in the garage due to the bee boxes.

.....your "normal" friends cringe when you start a sentence with "My bees".

.....you are using your husband's wood shop more than he does.

.....you find yourself passing up plants at the nursery because they don't produce nectar for bees.

..... you can spot a hive tool from 50' away.
..... you can tell the diffence between a bee and a hornet, while they're in flight, with nothing more than a glance in that direction.
..... you can spot another's hive(s) while driving at highway speeds.
..... you read honey labels while shopping.

I like the story of Bix’s neighbor mowing his grass in a bee suit.  When you see that, you know you have a bee keeper around….

You buy a stethoscope to listen to your bees in Winter

The only woodwork that gets done in the wood shop is for your bees

Your sensitivity to bee venom increases so you increase your hives by half instead of double

You might be a redneck beekeeper if you use Pledge Furniture Polish instead of Lemon Grass Oil to attract swarms.

When every time you pass a prybar/scraper in a hardware store, you refer to it as a "hive tool"!

Or when they curse bees, you point out that they are yellow jackets...
