Honey Bee Update 8/28/05
These are Italian honey bees. I just got them this spring of 2005, so I don't think I'll get a honey harvest until next summer. They are very cool! I got stung twice the 1st day, once the 2nd day, and none since I learned how to use my smoker properly.
One frame box, bees just installed 1 week ago.
3 months later, inspecting my honey super. There are now 2 brood chambers, a queen separator and the 10 frame honey super. Not much going on there unfortunately. Good thing I do this for the bees and not the honey!
Notice the elegant head wear! I got stung on the head 3 times as some bees decided to have a party in my hair. That lead to my new shower cap fashions while working the hive. And, of course, my signature rubber gloves.
My little creatures!
