750 Steinbach Smoker Bee Keeper
Hello, I am the Bee-Keeper.
The end of May when the bees swarm is
my busiest time. When a colony gets too large, a second queen leaves the
old hive and a lot of the members of the old colony follow her. Before
they find a new home (like a hollow tree), they assemble as a cluster at
a branch of a tree. This is the time to catch them with my net. I give
them a home in an empty bee hive.
Immediately they will start building
their combs and filling them with honey which I harvest in the fall.
From the combs we gain bees wax. Even the bee poison of their sting
administered in doses is good against rheumatism and arthritis. Already
the ancient Egyptians had domesticated the bees.
While I do my work around the bees I
smoke my pipe. They stay away from me, and I am not stung.
