Unfortunately I don't see too many bees in my area. I'll need to plant more attractive flowering plants for them.

If we're thinking about getting a hive, how much consideration should be done if we have small kiddos around?

Keeping a journal about your hive is pretty important. I see a lot of bee keepers skipping this step and then kicking themselves later when they can't remember how long ago they noticed strange behavior, or when their spring build-up started, etc.

Good Read. Another sign that your hive might be queenless is that the eggs layed in the combs are attached to the side of the comb and not the bottom. Laying worker bees cannot reach the bottom of the comb with their abdomens

Bees are like people. You can learn a lot about them just by observing.

A very good book on the subject of observing bee behavior is "At The Hive Entrance" by H Storch. Originally written in German and translated in 1985 to English, it is an excellent source of information to determine the activity inside the hive based on visual, auditory and scent clues found outside the hive.
