I live in northern Kansas close to Nebraska so I don't think I have to worry about africanized bees. We had a colony of wild bees in a large hollow oak for years, then about 3 years ago it came crashing down on the house. I should have tried to move the bees to a hive then but I didn't know anything about it and thought they would move to another one of the trees in the yard. I left the main part of tree they were occupying alone on the ground and cut up the rest. They stayed for a few days but eventually left. Now for the last few years I have nearly zero bees in the garden, I rarely see one. I think the melons and plants that need mechanical pollination are being pollinated by beetles and moths and not doing such a good job of it. So I've been reading all I can and watching a lot of videos. Think I'm going to give it a shot. Good to know there is someone with experience on the DP I can ask advise from if I get into trouble :) Cool story and pictures of your bees! Did you harvest any honey or are you letting them get established?
The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson
