Honeybees are fascinating!

With the first day of spring upon us I’m dreaming of May for our honeybee packages to arrive! Due to the crazy weather we have been experiencing they have been delayed a week (hopefully not longer). We were very excited for our Cinco De BEE-o party but it will be Once De BEE-o in this house.

There are so many miss conceptions about honeybees. The truth is they are amazing creatures and are responsible for pollinating many of our necessary items we eat daily. Bee pollen is different from airborne pollen that most of us are allergic too. If we don’t have bees to pollinate we would see a collapse in many plants near and dear to our hearts. We hope to thaw soon so we can get back to sugaring. Next time we will talk about what happens to the drones after they mate. On second thought we probably shouldn’t bring that up…
