Journal of a Bee-loser

 Let’s take a candid look into the happenings of a wanna-be beekeeper.


Dear Journal,

April 23, 2016

Just messaged a Facebook friend about some bees in her mother’s shed. Calling tomorrow to set up a time get them. I have no idea what I am getting myself into! According to my research, it looks pretty straightforward. I love Youtube!

I finished my Top Bar Hive. Yay! It looks pretty good, considering I built it. Maybe I will be able to get the bees next weekend. Possibly getting a bee suit. Depends on bills.

On my way to get honey bees! Wasn’t able to get a bee suit but I guess a Tyvek suit, tutu material and duct tape will have to do. I’m really excited to use the vacuum system I made! I love Youtube!

Note to self: Sometimes it is necessary to let a bill slide. Damn, bee stings hurt! Heading to Southern States for a bee veil and smoker. This looked easier online.

After being stung 13 times, I can finally say, we got them. There were 31 pounds of comb and 1 1/2 gallons of honey! I think it is safe to say I am addicted.

My bees are gone! I may die!
