End of an Era

We did not replace our bees this season and with the uncertainty over CCD, we decided to burn the brood boxes that they occupied last winter. We sold off the remaining equipment and are officially retired from beekeeping.

Sorry to hear you are leaving the hobby. I'm a 4th year beekeeper, and it's now "in my blood." I don't think I could ever stop keeping bees. I know it can be frustrating - I hope things work out for you!

Wow- I'm hoping (for all of our sakes) that it wasn't CCD. I'd like to believe/hope CCD was on the decline and no one was experiencing it anymore.

Whatever it was, I'm feel sad you lost the hives. It's been fun to follow your blog. Do let us know if you decide to get more hives!
