Fall Activity in the Bee Yard
Jim Spangler does not spend his summers shooting pool which is one of the things he likes to do when in Magnolia in the winter. He spends the summer taking care of his colonies of bees and now the season is over. A few days ago he and two other beekeepers shook his bees out of his equipment and into the equipment that they will ride in on their way to California where they will be placed in the almond orchards for pollination purposes. This shows one of the supers open and Jim is getting ready to take the inner cover off to see just what shape the bees are in.
