Time for a bee report! First----I was stung. It is true---a sting on the ankle. Second---I did exactly what I shouldn't have done, I jumped and hollered and then my husband---who was not wearing a bee suit--came to my aid and he got stung. But---it was my fault. I wasn't careful with what I was wearing. I had on my beesuit and sandals. The good news is the bees are thriving. No signs of mites or beetles and we added a second box or "super". So now we sit back and let the bees do the work, add sugar water so they eat that instead of the honey and check on them periodically! The more I read about bees, the more I am amazed!
