Backyard beekeeping keeps neighborhood blooming

Backyard beekeeping keeps neighborhood blooming

SACRAMENTO, CA. - To bee or not to bee.  That's the quesiton that's been buzzing around in my brain for years.  

Should I put a hive of honeybees in my tiny Arden park backyard?  What about my kids, will they get stung? What if a giant swarm decides to call me, "Honey," and chases me into my bed.

What about my neighbor's son, Tommy Phillips, who's terribly allergic to bees? God forbid!  How could I ever forgive myself if one of my bees zapped him into anaphylactic shock! 

Somehow, I just decided to to bite the bullet, put on my bee-bravado and head over to Sacramento's beekeeping supply shop on W street.

I mustered up all kinds of courage.  "I'd like to order a swarm of bees."

"O.K." said Mr. B, the bee man.

O.M.G.  Was that all there was to beekeeping? Just order a swarm and BAM, you've a beekeeper?

The answer is quite simply, "Yes."
