Default So my wife bought some NOPE

Went with the wifey and got a container of bees for her first hive. She took the class, got the bees etc. A container is around 10,000 bees. Kind of interesting rolling around with that in the car. They put em in the hive, they're overall pretty docile but one of the little bastards got me in the neck. It's definitely a very different experience.

That's awesome that she's doing that not only for the bees but for you guys, but FUCK all that noise I do like bees though, I respect them for being so important, therefore I will not kill them, wasps on the other hand, those things are pieces of shit.

They were dead fucking silent in the car, probably because it's cool out. I shit you not you would have never known there were 10,000 bees in the car with out rolling down the road.

Rough estimate 700-1K to get started with a fully operational hive, dress and gear.

We'll figure something out. May be a year before we see any. Each hive is supposedly good for 70ish lbs a harvest and you can get 2 harvests a year out of an established hive. Unlike my busted ass hobbies this one may amortize its self Going rate is supposedly ~$10/lb, and then you get quite a bit of wax at a similar price. I dabbled in candle making a long time ago may get back into it. May get into mead as well. I used to do wine so it wouldn't be a bad way to go. To make a 5 gallon batch of mead is likely around 1.5 to 2 gallon of honey based on the very prelim recipies I've seen.

This is the box they come in. 10,000 is a ball roughly 6 inches around. They tend to huddle around the queen. She's separated from the bees so they can acclimate to her. If you don't do that they'll attack her.

If it flies and stings, it dies.

Last last summer, we found wasps populating a soffit section around a gutter, by our back door. And of course I was sent out there to eradicate them because everyone else in the house is a fucking pussy, and, well, I hate them...

Anyway, waited until about 11pm on night, got up on the ladder and proceeded to empty a can of the foaming killer shit into the nest. However, two escaped in my attack and nailed me on the arm. Little fuckers. So I then emptied can #2 into the nest. Yea, much fallout from a nuclear war, they won't be back there...

With that said, my F-I-L now has a hive. I don't go anywhere near that corner of his property. A whole bunch of NOPE there...

If I find any fuckers in my yard or a hive I put a bug zapper light as close as I can do it. Leave that bitch on 24/7.

I did it at my old house in the front and forgot to turn it off and wouldn't you know it there was dead bees all over the ground in a 6 foot diameter. I also bought a fogger link and leave it on the deck. In the summer I'll fog the back yard once a week.

You have water near your house? Also sure they're not hornets or yellow jackets?

Not sure what they were but big and ugly motherfuckers. I think they were wasps from what someone said but I don't know how to tell the difference.
I have a little pond near the house. Do they normally gather near there?


Here is my rule. if it flies it dies.
I go to town with my $4 electric tennis racket from harbor freight

My wife brought some sort of small bee/bug nest home from Costco a few weeks back... I am skeptical of it. She has also been wanting a bat box forever....

If it's really anything over 5/8 long those aren't honey bees.

Just a quick update on this, I've been into the hive twice now. It's kind of freaky at some level having all those bees fly around you, but it's not terrible.

I've had the hives for about 2-3 weeks now and there's already significant progress in building out. We got to see the queens on both frames and stuff looks healthy.

Went into the hive again today, we had to remove some excess cone. They're building out like motherfuckers (I need to get some pics up.) We had the kiddo suited up and helping out, he was having fun with the smoker. After we're done removing some excess comb from the edges, I took a bit of the honey off the knife and tried it. Amazing is all I can say. Then I gave him some, and he was licking the frickin hive knife. Totally awesome.
