Over the last thirty days there has been three forest fires within ten miles of us
We have received numerous calls from friends offering help in one way or another.
So far, we did not have to leave our home. At times through the years we have felt alone.
Our families are scattered through out the west.
Then we think what would we have if we won a million dollars.
In all reality we have friends that far exceed a million dollars and we are not alone.
Thanks to the ones who have offered help and assistance.
The chemical to use with white fish cat food is Fipronil.
The yellow Jackets get into the food and then they take the food and chemical back to the hive.
The hive then consumes the mixture and dies.
We have used it in the past and it appears to work.
Thanks for using our webpage.

He will become what he ought to be and could be.

Welcome to the wonderful world of beekeeping.
There is a great deal of pride that comes from managing the care of beneficial insects that provide more fruit and vegetables due to their pollination.
The honey bees also create a product that contains a wide variety of several essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids as well as antioxidents.
Natural honey is good for you inside the body and out. Its composition makes it useful for treating minor burns and scrapes.
Please note: While it is great for older children and adults, pediatricians advise against feeding honey to infants less than one year old.
