Last Friday Becci emailed me regarding adopting a hive. She’s a second year beekeeper but haven’t had much luck with overwintering her bees last year. She wanted an established FERAL colony instead of “commercial bees” and through a little online research she found our website. Becci and her parents came over this past weekend to chat about bees and beekeeping and I was amazed that our thoughts and beekeeping practices are very similar. Becci wanted to go foundationless, no queen excluder, and be completely treatment and chemical free like our practices. This is going to make mentoring her and her family much easier. And the beauty of it is they only live about 5 minutes away from my place!
Thanks Danford’s for adopting this booming colony!
