Wow is what I have to say in the aftermath,,, Keep this in mind most and foremost,,, I know notta about taking care of bees and will be the first to say it... dont make me all bad does it? This ole feller is going to hook me up with many things,, one I wish to note is I can drive to get a 3 pound with a queen much less about a 1/3 than ordering them. Something that rocked my world was he eradicates bees for a price of 300 bucks, and kills them after,,, take note,,, after he takes the money,,, honey.... then just sprays killer so they dont come back,,, killing all that is there.... Staggers me man. I wish ,,,, now I am not PETA,, but I wish to help and preserve bees,, and I doing this in a backwards direction? He also told me a bees life is about 30 days.. "heavy sigh" I have alot to learn. All I want to do is "DO RIGHT" I am not panning for gold,,, nor am I looking to make a living doing such.. I feel there is a need for honey bees in my area.. the rest is a bonus ....Trust me.. I had rather give than to receive,,, its my will.
