I have a fairly new reader who calls himself “michigan” and today he sent along his version of Weekend Warrior he calls Bees and Dogs. Always Good.
New hives always start with new bees. Each box holds 3lbs. and about twenty thousand bees with Queen. Three pounds will run you about eighty bucks. You pick up.
Shake bees into hives, leave stragglers outside to find their way back with the swarm.
Inspect weekly and feed sugar sauce as needed
Remove Queen Box in a few days and inspect. Comb was made over a three day period.
And then we have two canine challenges.
This is Joan. Some say she has a white star on her chest; I call it a pentagram.
And, Zsa Zsa. She’s all of thirteen pounds wet but can run 35 mph.
A vicious and protective beast she is.
Michigan, Thanks for joining our Weekend Warrior gang!
