This season I’ve been receiving many emails and calls from people interested in starting beekeeping and adopting one of the hives. I’m always glad to make a new beekeeper and help out in anyway possible. My mentor list has grew dramatically and it’s wonderful!
Zach, a professional landscaper and now a dedicated new beekeeper recently adopted the FL-A hive. This hive was from my fig tree swarm, the larger swarm of the two. They were hived only on May 9th and have boomed from there, reaching about 60% filled. This queen emerged in May and then mated, now laying great patterns with much brood of all levels and have enough stores that they are now capping some of the honey.
I forgot to bring my camera but we used Zach’s Sprint HTC cell phone. Here’s Zach with his new booming honey bee hive. Can you tell he’s excited? 🙂
Thanks Zach for adopting the FL-A hive!
