Bee Hive Rescue – Fascinating Stuff!
“Every once in a while, bees find a home at Ocean View Farms organic community garden. Sadly, we can’t legally keep them there, but instead of calling the exterminators, a bee rescue team came to relocate them to a new home…
The bees had taken up residence in a storage box. Rob McFarland of HoneyLove.org lit a smoker to start the process. Smoke calms the bees, making them feel less threatened and easier to work with during the move…
Probably the most picturesque moment was when we discovered that the bees had built several layers of honeycomb around a garden rake in the storage box. It summed up the spirit of gardening and how intertwined we are with bees…
One of the perks was the gift of nectar. We took a little left over honeycomb home to eat as dessert. It was heaven on a plate.”
