This weekend the Davidson Farm welcomed some special new residents! Two beehives!
Here are some pictures of our bee installation. These are our package hives we purchased from Brushy Mountain and installed on April 2.
Here’s a link to download our Bee School power point from 3/30, in case you missed it! Learn about bees’ behavior, life cycle, and biology.
This Washington Post article from July 2015 suggests maybe we should. It also suggests the danger is not in the extinction of bees, but the extinction of beekeepers.
I say no! A beekeeper’s fight is never finished! Keep on keeping. I also say certain pesticides are definitely not helping the bees and likely are helping CCD.
