Bee Keeping ~ Only For The Very Brave!

Bee Keeping ~ Only For The Very Brave!

Life on a ranch, every day is different. You never know what you are going to find: bunnies partying in your front yard, a rattle snake curled up by your garage door, or a coyote slinking by your window. Every day is a new adventure. So when a small number of bees began to congregate around our water well, I didn’t think much about it. A month later, that small number of bees had multiplied. Obviously, a bee hive was in the making.

Not wanting our water well gummed up with honey…

We called The Bee Man ~ Rush Weston of Whiskey Flats Honey.

Because good people do not kill bees. They move them.

This is not as easy as you might think!

 

(Rush, our bee man, wears a bee suit and carries two epipens even though he is not allergic. Even though he is totally covered, he will still get stung a number of time. The suit is made out of canvas, thick but occasionally a bee’s sting will penetrate. Yikes!)

Now the scary stuff begins!

While Rush worked vacuuming up all the bees, Buster and David watched from a safe distance. 

I hid in the house!

The entire removal took a couple of hours.

The bees were safe and relocated to a new home.

Fascinating!

Need to relocate a bee hive in the Fort Worth/Aledo area?

Call Rush Weston 

He’s a great guy.
