“And we’ll never be royals
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of luxe just ain’t for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler,
You can call me Queen Bee
And baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.”

heard this song on the radio and immediately thought of her… Come to think of it I’ve never actually posted any of my bee doodles here so, here, have a bee~

Why taking honey doesn't harm bees

Bees actually dont spend their entire lives collecting honey! Bees only collect honey for storing at the very end of their life. For most of their lives they are nurse bees, or collecting pollen and nectar for short term storage (like feeding their brood) Baby bees actually eat a mix of uncured nectar and pollen, not honey.

A bee colony in an area like texas will need about 50 pounds of honey to make it through winter with more to spare. Because these bees were bred to store more honey than they naturally need, colonies often produce upwards of 80 pounds of honey a year.
A good beekeeper will not harvest honey from a first year bee colony because they need a surplus to build comb with. After the first year the bees will produce very little, if any, brood comb as it is already large enough to sustain a good population. A second year bee colony will produce far more honey than necessary.

Lets say you were to just leave the bees alone, letting them build up honey.
Firstly, your bees would swarm. Swarming is a dangerous thing for bees, very few swarms survive. They risk being sprayed by humans or moving into bad places (such as inside someones house)
Another thing that can happen when youre colony swarms is small hive beetle. Small hive beetles take advantage of any unguarded honeycomb (after a swarm there will be less bees guarding the comb) and they will wreck havoc. I have seem this first hand and its is awful. Too much honey is not a good thing.
It’s irresponsible to let the bees run out of room like that, which is why taking honey is useful. You take a box of honey, and you put an empty one on. Now that the bees have more space to build comb, their swarming instict will be surpressed. A honeybound hive is easily at rist of collapse.
Although it sounds nice to “leave all the honey for the bees” it honestly is not helping them. They have absolutely no need for such a surplus they were bred to collect.
I know this sounds like a dumb human who acts like they know more than the bees, but its true.

These are wood or carpenter bees and guess what! I have one!

It is wonderful! I noticed him today! There is a piece of flashing/edging that overlaps the beams that make up my rooftop garden. It needs to be fixed, because the rain and wear have made the flashing lift up from the edge of the beam, creating a little tunnel of a gap. Today I was watering my leeks, and they are flowering. I saw the bee, his little fat body hovering. I though he wanted to get at my onions, and so leaned back. But no! He wanted to land in his little home!

He bumbled into the tunnel and squeezed his fat body in. And I got a very good look at him! He was about the size of the last knuckle on my ring finger, fat, black, fuzzy all over, but with a little yellow saddle on his back ringed with shimmering gold. A lovely, fat little bee.

And I looked him up, thinking, “I wonder if he has a hive or something? Should I protect that area, or was it a stop over for him?” I have discovered that they are solitary bees! They find little homes like this!

Apparently they eat wood, but there’s really nothing for him to eat here, so he’s alright where he is. What a lovely surprise! I do hope he gets as large as the big one there in the image of a bee on a hand. Mine is rather tiny. I called a friend who keeps bees. He says that it is a baby wood bee, which to me is one of the most adorable phrases I have ever heard.

Say it: Baby wood bee.

I have set out a dish of sugar water for it, right beside the doorway to its house. I hope he pollinates my veggies and whatnot. I like the notion of that.
