I am new to the world of both blogging and beekeeping. I hope to chronicle, as so many have done, my experiences into the hobby of beekeeping. I will post anytime I do anything with the hive. I will also try to keep a hive diary on here for records.

spoils of war
It started at 9:00 and went until 2 pm. This cut out was a lot of work an in 95 degree heat, it was not fun. We had to cut into the house due to tiling on the inside and they were sort of below the floor.
I have no idea if we got the queen or if we got to all of the nest. I have a feeling that I will have to go back in a day or two and tear off more siding and cut more wood off of the house. There was a small bee-run that either went to the back of what we exposed, or a whole new area.
I did end up getting a ton of honey covered bees, who knows if they will make it. I also got what will amount to about 3 gallons of honey!
