Erik Diemer of Blossum & Buzz Beekeeping spoke to us about his experience working with the bees.  he has been doing this for 13 years.  Honey bees are responsible for 1/3 of all the food we eat today.  How they make honey is from 20-30 flowers per flight and the nectar is transferred from bee to bee and then put into the hive.  Honey combs is the was.  Summer bees only live 3 weeks till they work themselves to death.  Winter bees live the longest....for months!
