BEE KEEPING; Bee Gone is a family owned and operated business. They remove unwanted wiled hives from homes and commercial buildings, and also
manage local “Honey Hives.” They participated at the Hoke County
Fair and are providing a series of articles concerning honey bees to
the “Rockfish Review.” Introduction to Article One: The Autumn Bee
The little insect, known as the honey bee, pollinates your garden and
draws nectar from blooms and blossoms. Autumn is the time of year that
the beekeeper will bed down the honey hive for the winter. The hive
is inspected for pests and other problems that would cause the hive to
“die” over the winter months. After the inspection is completed the
bees will seal their box for a cozy home. The bee keepers of “Bee
Gone” urge all home gardeners not to use powdered insecticides, such
as Seven Dust. It is very hazardous to the honey bee population and
will kill a bee hive over the winter. Contact Bee Gone at (910) 797-6940.
