I watch Tim on YouTube, Walls BeeMan or something like that.  Can?t miss that pink undershirt shirt and shorts.  He seems like a sincere fella on his bee videos and expresses knowledge.  He has a video wearing no protection, opens a hive and soon realizes a big mistake.  Kinda funny video.
Blessings

He has been in bees for many many years. Yes he has several funny ones, has a good sense of humor. Loves to laugh. Showed one video with his son opening a modified shop vac and bees tear him up!! Of corse Tim is laughing the whole time !! He is one of the old time beekeepers. A really nice man.

Actually we don't even know if there were bees here in the first place, but we do know that there is a manifest that says they were brought her in 1622.  The vikings probably brought them back around 900 to 1000.  The Chinese probably brought some in 1421.

I did not know the Chinese were in America in the 1421.  History is not my favorite subject, but an important one.  I?ll take your word for it Mr. Bush.
Bless the Beekeepers.  Dealing with venomous insects takes courage, patience, dedication and a desire to be with nature.

The Chinese left chickens in California and South America.  We know that by the DNA.  They left a lot more everywhere around the world in 1421.
