  1. I have a large hive in my porch.
    What should I do with them ?
    Don’t want to destroy,but afraid they might be dangerous if disturbed.

  2. Hi Alan,

    I recently read an article regarding the recently discovered native Irish honey bee and am interested in starting my own hives this year, I was wondering whether you could provide me with information concerning their care, relating to flora, suitable conditions for the hives, specifically spacings for the mesh baseboard and where I might find a queen with which to start a colony. I live in County Roscommon and would also be interested in joining your community and being a representive of the native Irish bee here.
