Bees? If they are problem, call, join, or visit GR beekeepers

Bees use the soy and corn dust in bird food for nutrition

John McCasland writes:
The honeybees are after the feed scraps. There are no trees blooming yet and they use the soy and corn dust for carbohydrates for nutrition to start raising the first brood of the season. Put some powdered feed someplace accessable to them and they should not be as much of a bother. They won't be swarming until late April or May and then there will be a large mass of bees (think basketball size) looking for a new home. That is the time to call a beekeeper to come and get them for you if need them moved. Better yet join (or visit) the Green River Beekeepers and learn about becoming a beekeeper yourself. They are fascinating little creatures and do so much for pollination as well as produce sweet treats. -John McCasland
