Last night was the most passengers I’ve ever had in my sidecar before, and they were all girls! I’m guessing at least 10,000.
I finally have honeybees! Did you know all the worker bees are female? I rode over after work and picked them up from a post office warehouse. The box was smaller than I expected. I ordered three pounds. It easily fit into my sidecar. I took them home and let them rest in my dinning room for the night. It was very strange to eat dinner with thousands of bees safely buzzing a few feet away. My friend and I liked it.

Interesting passengers you have there. Did you build the hive or is it a commercial product? You may need to dramatically expand the size of your garden this year.ReplyDelete
BTW, is honey vegan?
I believe you may now hold the record for most passengers....err monkeys in the sidecar.ReplyDelete
Yikes. I don't mind bees but I don't know if I could get up close and personal to that many at one time. I sure love it when they pollinate the garden though.ReplyDelete
I was unaware that you could transport them via the mail. and to answer one of the questions above, no...honey is not considered vegan since it is an animal byproduct.ReplyDelete
