Someone had put this beehive on my Dad’s property a few years ago, and did not come back to work it, or remove it. Year before last, I called a work aquaintance who I knew that kept bees, and had them come and take a look. The hive was healthy, and it was suggested we add the top box or super, so that the bees could have a place to make and store honey for the summer and fall, and we could get some of the honey the next year. My Dad became ill, and we just forgot about the hive. My son was living on the property last summer, and reported that the bees were very active all summer. My son moved off the property last month and the property is to be sold. I want to bring my Dad’s hive to my home. Today, the weather was sunny, (but windy) and about 58 degrees. The bees were out and active. I have been watching the blog of comfrey cottages, who blogs about bees. She has suggested I purchase the book Beekeeping for Dummies, (which I did off Amazon today.). While looking through todays paper, guess what I found! A beginning bee keepers class starting in March, to be held by the Hamilton County Extension Office! First thing Monday morning I am registering.
