I can remember going to my grandmother's house every Easter, and her yard would be full of honey bees harvesting from the clover blossoms. You could not walk without almost stepping on one. The last time I saw that scene was about 15 years ago. Bees in more trouble than ever after bad winter http://phys.org/news/2010-03-bees-bad-winter.html Does anyone have honey bee hives? If so, do you need to make sure they have a food source nearby so they don't leave the area or can they survive anywhere? I think I would like to get some hives, but I have no idea where to start. Anyone have any experience in this matter?
