1.) In the fall you spend more on sugar than you do on the rest of the groceries combined.
2.) You have four hive tools, each of a different color.
One is for opening the hive, the second is for removing frames, the third is for removing propolis and the fourth is for squashing small hive beetles.
3.) You put your pine needles in marked bags based on needle length
and color so you can experiment as to which combination works best.
4.) You think it’s a toss-up as to which creature is the most vile in the history of the Earth – skunk or possum.
5.) It takes you longer to get through the fence you constructed around your hives to keep out the bears, possum, skunks and raccoons than it does to actually work the hives.
6.) You use a Kubota to haul all of your equipment
each time you go to the apiary.
7.) You paint the shutters on your house to match the colors of your hives.
8.) The carpets you lay in front of the hives to keep the grass down are better than the carpets
in your living room ... and are changed more often.
9.) Your daughter knows that the best Mothers/Fathers Day gift is as much fondant as she can squeeze into the trunk of her car.
10.) Your spend
all of Christmas Day with your nose buried in the bee books which you received as gifts.
