My Grandma and I went into the electrified bee hive area. I could hear a lot of buzzing .
I put on a bee suit (special hat with a mesh screen, one piece suit) and gloves.I smoked the bees with a smoker then the bees were all calm.
I was looking for a Queen bee in each hive. I found a queen bee in every hive, and that is a good thing. I even found a Queen bee that my Grandma could not find!
After that I was looking for a bad queen bee. We were breaking the bad queen bee cells.
A bad queen bee is a bee that flies away with all the bees .I got stung once on the hand through the glove.
The second last picture is of the smoker.
This last picture is a picture of an extractor which is used to extract the honey, which tastes delicious. ”
