This blog explains how I keep bees. It works for me, it might not work for you. Use my methods at your own risk.
Always wear protective clothing and use a smoker when working bees.

I was up in Ely this weekend. The fire from a week ago has scarred the south side of Ely on Hwy 1. You can see several homes that were surrounded by burnt trees that were saved by firefighters. Already the green has been returning. Usually after a fire, some of the first flowers to emerge is fireweed. Fireweed produces some of the lightest honey in the world.
I have kept bees for 28 years and run 25 colonies. We have changed our business name to Bees and Honey LLC. We are still selling honey at our Stillwater location.
Nature's Nectar LLC Bee Supply has moved to Oakdale.
