Thief-ing bees


Dear Family & Friends

Very sad news: We just lost one old and weak bee colony that we've been trying to maintain. There was 'thiefing' incident - where outsider aggressive bees came to our place to rob ad attack our one old and weak beehive that we were trying to maintain.  

Because the colony was already a weak family (with no defendor) - they were targeted and failed. Same applies with a society or a family situation - very important to strengthen & unite the family for success. Our other strong colonies fought and won. 

We took out all the honey that was left in this hive for us to benefit...  A sad incident but we will aim to  increase our hives next year as we learn more.  The sun is shining and it's another beautiful day. We move on with greater hope.
