    I'm not sure if this goes here, but my bees are having a poop party today.
    They don't go in the hive, so the first 50* day in the winter they come out.

    Do you raise them for honey?

    Many years ago in the beginning, that was the idea.
    Now they're just pets. I did get a box last year because the hive was too full.

    Very cool. Dont see many honey bees around anymore unfortunately. I mostly see bumble bees and yellow jackets up here in the north where I am. Not to keen on the yellow jackets tho, speical since one decided to sting me in the ear last summer. How long have you been keeping then for?

    my wife and I like to grow garden fruits and vegetables and some flowers.. I've always wanted to start a hive.. an army of pollenators in your yard has to be great and I do enjoy honey and as IamKrush said honeybees are on the decline so a hive would be a solid win/win all around
