While over wintering in late 2020, I placed all my beehives behind a tree line approximately four hundred yards from a large pond and family gathering area. However, I failed to notify our parish’s Mosquito Control Unit of the beehives’ location. Consequently, they sprayed, and the resulting poison drift killed all my bees. I destroyed the hives for fear of residual contamination. Currently, we are working hard to resume our selling, but it is taking longer than expected. We should have sufficient honey by late May, so please stay tuned for updates.
