We maintain two hives constituting I’d guess 80,000 bees in our backyard. Best damned honey ever. Tried to catch a wild swarm last week to add a third.

Become a beekeeper. 

Cool! I used to be a beekeeper too! I think we had eight stacked hives in Boulder, Co. I loved those little guys.

Awesome... bees are fantastic. My wife & I work from home and go out and visit the bees everyday - sometimes several times a day. Our first colony didn't survive our first winter - we were figuring it out & they were ravaged by mites. But we added a second hive & I think we mastered mite-control last spring & summer - both colonies (one Italians, one Russians) survived and are thriving. We harvested after winter and will harvest again in late July, and then let them rebuild their honey stores ahead of winter. We buy 4oz & 8oz mason jars and give most of it away - people love it. For giggles, we are going to enter some jars into county fairs this year - Marin, Alameda, Orange County.
