I can WELL remember the day that I brought home my bee hives. I had two hives INSIDE a Ford Bronco II. I drove about an hour home with buzzing just behind my seat. As I drove, I kept asking myself, just how nuts I was, and what if I get in an accident? There wouldn't be one EMT that would touch my vehicle to rescue me!
The funny thing is, all of these memories came back to me today as I rode through Ellsworth on my way to Friend and Friend. A tractor trailer that was hauling bee hives, (for pollination in the blueberry barrens), was in the lane next to me. I think he had just as many bees on the outside of the protective netting covering the hives as he did on the inside of the netting!
Honey bees are truly fascinating to watch and to study. It is good of you Randy to do this. The honey bee population has significantly struggled over the last 10 years. Doing what you are doing helps!
