Honey-makers

Today we had lunch and a great visit with some old friends. Dan enjoys beekeeping in his back yard. He built the hive tower from plans he found on the internet. He had some difficulty this spring with the hive swarming up into a tree, but he was finally able to coax them back into the hive. He is hoping they will continue to make honey as seen through the glass window. Each layer has a glass window so he can monitor their progress.

  3. Soo cool Dwight!
    I was sooooo excited when we had bees in our brick wall and did a trap out and it worked. then we had the box and electic wire around them too and things were working great. much to our chagrin an animal got in and destroyed them all.. sooo sad
