Hive 4: The Barbecue Bees

Rather than rehash the process in words, here is a short slide show of highlights from our time spent removing "The Barbecue Bees" from the gas grill and relocating them first to the deep super, then eventually to Bee Hill. It was an interesting process and by far the fastest and easiest of his attempts. They went right in on Friday even before we left and we picked them up Sunday night. The honey was dark even though it was the spring batch, but these bees were near the piney woods without a lot of diversity in their nectar sources.


  1. I'm not sure what is crazier - the beekeeping itself or the beekeeper allowing the bee blogger to document it all.

  2. Hee, hee, hee - love the moniker "bee blogger."

    I'm looking forward to someday trying some Prairie Blossom honey!

  3. Kel -- I left out the photos of him heeding my instructions: "Turn around and show me that comb!" because you can see his facial expression, even through the bee veil.

    Mari -- I think you'd like it with your Fage!
