I went to help my Mentor with his bee’s today. It was great. It was my first time truly waring my Bee suit LOL other than to talk a photo. I did not get stung and I felt very comfortable, I give thanks to my Mentor for his great guidance, he just made it calm for me.
it was my first time handling bee boxes and frames. I was surprised how heavy the frames were and the boxes. WOW and the amount of honey in them. They were not even full. I am going to do finger exercises to grip the frames
I was able to spot the unmarked Queen 3 out of 4 times. I was surprised.
Thank to all on here for all the great post. This forum helped me be comfortable with the bee’s as well
He made comment about aggressive bees, He had bag some sort of plant that someone had given him to put in a smoker to help calm them down. He could not remember the name of the plant, he was going to find out but was wondering if anyone would know what that plant would bee. It was dried out and looked like small dried red grapes.
