Hitching a Ride

My husband and I were leaving a friends place where we have a couple of hives, on our way to another lot to do more inspections. I felt something crawling on the back of my arm......and there she was, a little nurse bee. I could tell she was a *newbee* a nurse bee because she still had fuzz all over and she didn't try to fly. Her wings were folded one under the other.

When we finished up at the next stop and powdered the hive with sugar (for varroa control) she was excepted into the hive.
I love these little creatures! They're the sweetest things!

Until next time.


  1. Awwww. What a sweet little bee. Lucky girl that she hitched a ride with you! I'm happy she was accepted into her new home. Very sweet!
