Did you know that...

  • ...about 90 U.S. crops depend on bees for pollination?
  • ...many hives are trucked from region to region for pollination purposes?
  • ...honeybee health is threatened by, among other things, mites?

First, last month's "Poll" question was, "How long has Bees Keeper been keeping bees?" Answer: I'll never tell.

With that out of the way, it's May. Typically, May and June are considered "swarming season" for bees and beekeepers. So, just in case you should encounter something similar-looking to this, you'll know that some nearby honeybees are perpetuating the species.

Whatever, you do, don't panic! If you're seeing a swarm of honeybees, you are seeing them at their MOST docile moment. They just LOOK intimidating!

Just send me an email and I'll come get them!

Signing off,

Bees Keeper
