I Got Stung
My husband and I attended our Monthly Bee Club Meeting last night.
We were fortunate to have a speaker telling us all about different options for controlling Varroa Mites in your beehive - including an Organic solution, that I was most interested in.
This speaker also had some Bee Food all the way from Canada (to New Zealand) to purchase, so we brought 10 "Patties" for our girls.
I got Stung
Excited to get home from the farm this morning and give the girls their new special Bee Feed.
I rushed out and opened the first hive.
Now these hives have not been opened since May this year, so the girls have been left to their own devices till now.
One would think after all this time, the girls would be happy to see me.
Within moments of opening the first hive, I was stung twice!!! (and it hurts).
Didn't think I would need my Bee Suit or the Smoker (which calms the bees).
Use the right Tools
There are Tools required for any job, and usually for good reason.
Safety gear is also required for certain jobs, and usually for good reason.
Not only in Beekeeping but also in life you need to use the right tools to get the job done properly and safely to avoid getting stung!
Lots of people get stung by using the wrong Tools.
WA has the Right Tools
I can't help myself when I see the Question
"how do I cancel my WA membership"
WA has the right tools for what we are all here to do, why would you go elsewhere and get Stung!
