A Swarm in December?

I got a call from the Carpinteria Sanitary District today.  A small football sized swarm landed under their picnic bench.

The hives are overwintering in Carpinteria



500 hives are here from Sacramento hoping for warmer weather to get ready for Almonds.

This hive looks so good in its new home.  The hive is much lighter and easy to deal with.

Invitation to Save the Bees

Tuesday November 22nd at 5:30 pm we are presenting the story below by David Chamlee.

We are informing the school district that there are other options instead of killing the bees that will still protect the children.

If you are unable to make it but would still like to let the board know you support our effort to save the bees please let me know by providing your name.  If you would also be willing to save the bees if they are on school district property also provide your phone number.



The Carpinteria Unified School Board meets every 2nd and 4th Tuesday at the City Hall Council Chamber (Unless otherwise specified) at 5:30 p.m, located at 5775 Carpinteria Ave. Board meetings are televised on Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. on channels 18 and 881. The public is welcome.

End of the Season Cleanup

Time to clean up all the  hives that I have collected over the year.  Burning the wax is better than throwing it away incase there is any diseases that can spread to other bees.
