I'm thinking about keeping bees. I've been to a couple of meetings of local beekeepers and ordered a couple of books. It seems more complicated than I'd initially pictured.
I've also discovered that herbicides are bad for bees. I thought pesticides would be bad for them, but not herbicides. Round up is bad for bees. The farmers use it extensively. I don't know that I'll have much luck with bees in that case.
