I'm still fired up about this. Bear with me, things will simmer down and be back to normal soon.
So this morning I checked these nine hives here at home.
Many more dead bees out front:
This is still nowhere close to what I would consider a true bee kill, but I did find one rather distressing thing-- a queen! Out in the pile in front of one of the better hives.
Late in the afternoon, Buzz Taylor pulled in the drive.
Years ago I helped Buzz get started in bees and he's still going strong.
But this kind of thing can make even the strong quiver with apprehension.
The corn was planted yesterday.
So for just a moment I was thinking maybe I was a little harsh on the EPA in that last post. You know, they're intelligent people, government employees all doing the best they can for the public good. So what if the wheels turn a little slower here in the US? We'll get it right eventually. They're staying busy... right?
|Well now... that explains some things.|
Be careful, Mom. You never know what's going to end up on this blog.
