Bee Zen

15 Sep

Mornings like this one, I forget about to-do lists and ten year business plans. I forget too about pesticide kills and chemical-coated produce.

The hum of at least one healthy hive up early for their morning munchies is enough for me.

Another bee kill in Albuquerque

10 Sep

This week, another local (and longtime) beekeeper was devastated by a massive kill in one of his strongest hives. If only bees could form a class action lawsuit…

This is the first of the bee kill from Sept 9th which continued into today the 10th. I have tried to find out who sprayed what where and will hopefully have some leads tomorrow. This hive WAS three stories with a brand new queen.. WAS… Better Living through Chemistry… .

Chemical Kill @ The Polski Hive?

7 Sep

Overnight, the Polski Hive seems to have been poisoned and just like last year’s bee massacre in July, it was sudden and excruciating to witness.

Apparently, pesticide poisoning is a neighborhood tradition.
