I wish bees all the very best but this isn't for me! The picture of the couple covered in bees nearly sent me into anaphylactic shock!

I didn't realize how many different looking hives you can put up. I have actually thought about calling a bee keeper to see if they would like to put one on my property! Thanks for all this info!

Interesting article but I don't think the property management would be too thrilled. LOL

Great story, highly allergic so not for me. Get rid of the pesticides and human interfereance of the ecosystems from fracking, dams, drilling, destroying the natural systems that have been around be for we were. Work with mother nature in stead of taking. We are but visitors we should act accordingly.

I had a visit from a very large bee hive that stayed for 2 days..We have the killer bees here so I did not
want to fool with them because I didn't know what kind they were.

Sounds interesting, but I think the beekeeping requires some expertise. I do not know anything about bees.

I would love to do this, but I don't think our subdivision would allow beekeeping.

Noted, tweeted, shared, tweeted, shared. Obviously it takes a special type of person to be a beekeeper; it would not work for me, I am severely allergic to the venom.
