Bear Proof Raised Platform for my Bees !

I had another bear get into my main yard so I decided to build a raised platform.  The pipes are 6 inch well casing.  It was quite a struggle and lots of hard work, but it will be well worth the peace of mind.  I wanna see Winnie the Pooh try to shimmy up those poles after I put the axle grease on !

Setting up new colonies at an outyard

The alfalfa is just about to bloom and the farmer is usually late in cutting it  - so this is a great spot for bees.

Installing Bees !

We loaded some bulk bees with purchased Russian Queens today and it went perfectly!  Beautiful weather and lots of bloom everywhere.
