Yeah well, a local new beekeeper shared his story with me. Recently after a lot of rain this newbee had 6 beautiful chock-a-block, fully capped frames of honey sitting in a box in his wheel barrow. He left them sitting there while he went & did something else. By the time he came back, there was a massive amount of bees on the frames. Too many for him to handle, so he left them. By the next morning the frames were completely empty.
He told me that he’ll never let that happen again. A lesson well learned.
To add insult to injury, his wife thought it was a big joke
