    Since I am new to the bee world I have been doing a lot of reading the last 8 -10 months. I have Carniolan. I have read where our girls occationally enjoy a little swim in others pools... (For whatever reason) - With a housing development across the road from me and one known pool, I decided to buy my girls their own bird bath pool. Since bees have an attraction to certain smells I decided to put some 'Honey B Healthy' in theirs.

    Last evening I went down to check and clean it and they were like cattle in a feed lot. So cute wathcing them all circled drinking. Maybe that will have them drinking at home. lol What do they need with chlorine anyway.... If I wanted blondes I would have gotten Italians.

    My girls aren't putting anything out. I am! 10 lbs of sugar every 3 or 4 days. Wally told me I might only have to feed them for a few days after getting them..... Ya, right. These girls are sugar syrup aholics. :lol: What the heck do I know. They flutter their wings at me and I give them more.
