I started Beedaddy Apiary four years ago because my wife said that the USA was losing its bees and honey to some disease so I got off my butt and started my own apiary. First, it was late November when I started so I could not buy any bees until spring so not knowing anything about bees except that they will sting you, I bought bee books, the best one being Bees for Dummies. I listened to a bunch of YouTube videos and most of all I listened to my local beekeeper who gave me advice on setting up a bee nucleus in Kanab, UT.

Afterward, I purchased ten nucs from my local dealer and put them into hives that I built over the winter. I put the hives in some of my neighbors' backyards with their permission. Not a good idea. Sooner or later someone or some pet is going to get stung and they call and want the bees moved now. I learned to keep my bees and honey in my own yard and enclose them in a fenced-in area. I have not had any problems with my bee nucleus since.

I would like to thank the nice people from Fresno who gave me help feeding my bees on August 7. Thankyou.
