  • Great day with the bees

    I have a friend (believe it or not) who had upper back surgery a month ago. He is not able to bend or lift to check his bees. Now I can not bend or lift, but another fellow, not a beekeeper, went along to do the lifting and I did the bee work. Wonderful day playing with the bees then having a meal together to visit - largely about bees. Ahhhh . . .
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

    I heard a song today that reminded me of you, Jed.

    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

      GJ, that sounds like a great day!

      I have a question for you about a bee.

      I was going down the stairs to my basement the other day and saw what I thought was a huge beetle crawling across the floor. Which is icky, since we don't have huge beetles here.....as far as I know.....

      When I got closer, I saw that it was a huge bee crawling across the floor. Probably 2 inches long, fat body, seemed very sluggish. My son trapped it in a box and we released it outside where it crawled away.

      We hope that it came in on somebody's clothes, but I was wondering if you knew what kind of bee it might have been. I would call it a bumblebee, but it seemed to have a longer body that what I would normally think of as a bumblebee having.

        Do you get Carpenter Bees in the wilds of Canuckistan?

          Don't know. Probably.

          But all the images of carpenters I have looked at don't look like what I saw.

          We DO have 18 varieties of bumblebees, though!

            Dear Mr. Beeman,

            i have seen bees being vacuumed up. Doesn't this hurt the bees?

              There are several hundred different carpenter bee species, and they do resemble giant bumble bees.

                  Man, mossy. ... you got me so curious, I Googled "bee about 2 inches long" and found some frightening images. Naturally I can't upload them ar the moment, but there's a hummingbird clearwing and a cicada killer (do you get cicadas up there?).

                    No cicadas.

                    I am pretty sure it is a type of bumblebee.

                    That is my story and I am sticking to it.

                          Did it look like this?

                              Oh, good, at least we've ruled out one kind of bumblebee.
