Our first bee visitor under 4-ft tall was Kinsey Craig. She’s three. She doesn’t know anything about bees, but she likes honey. When we opened the observation windows, she was impressed with how many bees were inside the hive (so are we). For each hive she said,”There’s a whole couch of bees in there!”
I love it. Bees come in a box of 10,000. We put one in each hive. So 10,000 bees is a couch. Collectively we have two couch of bees (couches?). How many couches will be have in a few weeks when the first brood hatches??
