Honey Bees in our backyard

Honey Bees....
Made a home in an old vintage trunk
in our back yard.
Over 10,00 honey bees....

When Ken the beekeeper opened the
lid of the trunk the whole comb
He did manage
to save some combs to take home.

Ken is looking for the baby bees that will
be transported into this temporary
frame kit.

Look at those honeycombs filled
with nectar and honey!!

Ken was kind enough to leave
us with some honeycombs for
us to extract the nectar and honey.

He then used some sort of
vaccum to suck up all those
bees to take home.
He did say that the bees are not harmed
while doing this.

the honey is so fresh and tasty, especially
when it's from your own back yard.
It was a great educational experience...
my son and I were full of questions and Ken
was so patient with us and the bees.
I am seriously considering starting
a beekeeping hobby...
AFTER Fancy Flea of course.
