Hi guys, my name’s Roen. I’m an 8th Grader from Kailua, Hawaii. We just got bees put into our Flow Hive and we’re so excited! I’m still a little nervous about going out there and doing stuff like change the sugar water, feed the pollen patty, etc. Here’s a picture of my hive:
Congratulations! How exciting.
One of the best ways to get comfortable with your bees is to spend time observing them and getting to know there habits and routines.
I like to sit with my sketch pad and draw them and the flowers they visit, as well as journal what’s going on.
It is definitely a wonder to open the hive and check on the brood and honey stores and to try to spot the elusive queen.
Good luck with your bees, and welcome to the forum.There are lots of folks here who have experience and advice that they love to share.
Be sure to keep us updated
I too am novice but the more you do it the more confidence you get and the bees are fun to watch.
Hi Roen welcome,
I was in 8th grade in 1956 and after two years with bees I still feel like a novice with something to learn every day.
That’s great. What a fun project to take part in
