Re: I bee back

Our area is not very diverse in flower variety, at lest in terms of honey. Most of what we get is a varied Wildflower containing many different floral types but heaviest flavored by clover, usually Dutch Clover.

no, actually, that's a ""work" pic. It's a swarm that I was called out to collect last summer.

I run my own business as a bee conservationist, Integrated Pest Management services and beekeeping supplies and equipment sales.
