A Winter Visit to the Bee House

Grab a STETHOSCOPE and head out to check the hives in the bee house. Slide open a panel and quiet yourself - the sound travels through all the wood and you can hear the slightest creak in the structure.

Hold your breath and listen.....nice SOLID humming coming from 3 hives (worse case scenario - 3 out of 6 isn't too bad for this climate) Just because I couldn't hear the others - doesn't mean they're gone....they could be in another corner of the hive or very small.

It's interesting how each hive seems to have their OWN NOTE/frequency.
