Bees came back
« on: June 26, 2017, 07:38:13 PM »
After having all my bees die this spring I was depressed and thought I'd give up on being a bee keeper. I left my hives sit were they were and just sort of ignored them, well low and behold two swarms moved in the other day and now I'm a bee keeper again.

Guess I was wrong the bees that were visiting my hives did just that, just visiting not moving in.

Back to I think they came back I was out tonight and the bees were cleaning and ventilating at least one hive the other one is kind of iffy. That to me means they have moved in and have taken up house keeping. (wish me luck)

Congratulations on the return. I hope if my first attempt fails I get that lucky.
