Naturally


I've been curious about bee nests and more specifically about housing one in our backyard. I love the idea having a special place in our yard for these pollinators and these nest are especially beautiful. I am a little sceptical only because bees do sting and we have neighbors to consider as well. One house I am certain should be added to our yard is the Toad in a Hole, which houses toads of course and their main diet includes slugs and snails!

I am in the process of becoming a bee keeper. I have the hive and will get the bees and queen on the first of May. To acquaint myself with the process I took a 6 week course put on by the local bee keepers association. Learned a lot and made some new friends. There were 80 of use new bee keeper in the class. The hive ($100), Bees ($100), Class ($85) and accessories such as smoker,veil, foundation ran about ($80). New York City has just make bee keeping legal in the city. The White House has even installed a hive! I think it will be fun and I'm looking forward to giving honey as Christmas gifts. Good luck. Ann
