Honey Score!

Honey Score!


This was our first official honey harvest and we did pretty well.  We pulled 5 combs and retrieved 1.5 gallons of larvae free, clear, citrus-y sweet honey!

Sharing the wealth with family and friends, one person asked if the honey would be poisoned by Oleander bushes.

The answer is no.  There are no oleanders that produce any rewarding nectar that the honey bees can harvest.  Once the bees catch on to the fact that the oleanders only look nice they leave them alone and move on to expending energy where it is rewarded.
