Re: Harvesting Honey
It is way too early to take honey, the bees have been living on their reserve all winter, you have to give them a chance to build up the combs. Also, you want to be careful with wild hives that they aren't Africanized bees or you could have some real trouble. You are going to have to cut some wood from that tree to get honeycomb and you better be dressed for it and have a good bee smoker.
When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
