With word of the peak Cherry Blossom blooms coming early this year, so to comes our annual reminder from the DC Beekeepers:

“Spring is here and honeybees sometimes go searching for new homes. They (and we) could really use your help. If you see a swarm of bees, please call or text (202) 255-4318 or email [email protected] and and a team of DC beekeepers will spring into action to give house-searching honeybees the home they are looking for! Insecticides will not take care of your situation, but we can.”

    Bees cross pollinate plants, make delicious honey, and only sting in self-defense. Wasps are just a bunch of @#$%*$.

    • Ben

      Even better, carpenter bees do all of that and don’t sting!

      • They sure can. But they are too busy. Just like honey bees.

    Anyone watch Black Mirror? We should protect the bees who have a very important job, or else…
