  1. Nice article! We have a hive in the Mahncke Park Community Garden. Watching the bees is one of the best parts of gardening there.

  2. The public is invited to a free presentation, “Native Bee Identification and Conservation,” at the next meeting of the San Antonio chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas (NPSOT).

    There are at least 700 native bee species in Texas in addition to the famous non-native European honeybee. Jessica Beckham, PhD, a lecturer in the Environmental Science and Ecology department at UTSA, will present the natural history and identification of some of the major groups of native bees in Texas and will discuss plants and practices that will aid in the conservation of these vital pollinators.

  3. Loved the Mountian Dew honeycomb. A unique combo, but I’m sure not too healthy for the bees. Very glad to see that bees are being taken care of and that the importance of beekeeping is being understand in the more urban areas.
