"To BEE or Not to BEE"
The adopted Hive of: Michel and Francoise Petit

The Forest Lake Country Club, with the active participation and involvement of Nidge Suchner and a new chef, Chef Nathan, is renewing their fight to save the bees one hive at a time.

Meridian has renewed their interest and are growing their apiary. From 5 hives we are looking at running 15 hives in 2017. An exciting adventure for sure where volunteers will learn to build hives, care for the bees, harvest honey, and use wax for making candles and balm products here.

The Walnut Creek Country Club were the first to renew and continue their involvement with Honey Bee Squad. The hive was visited at the end of February and the bees overwintered fine and were busy. A very promising hive for 2017 for sure.

What a pleasure to see the girls!!!

Even if that means that there is bee poop on everything left outside... Oh well; it will wash off...

General Motors is engaged in saving the bees. At their locations: the Renaissance Center or the Tech Center, the company shows its environment responsibility. The bees are delighted, but not ready to trade their wings for GM's product for transportation!

First nice, warm day of the winter... 55° F and the girls are out doing their cleaning flight....
