Homestead Happenings

Nuc boxes. We use these for requeening the stronger hives. Those are saltcedar trees blooming behind me.

Pear blossoms in the beeyard.

This box contains $1200 worth of queen bees, sent Next Day Air from northern California. We requeen every hive each year because the African bees invaded our area over 10 years ago, and we are trying to keep our hives as gentle as possible.
