    Denise goes above and beyond to make the buyer happy. I can't say [type] enough good things about her. Highly recommended!

    I'm very pleased with the nymphs recently purchased from Eric. The transaction went smoothly as it should. He sent extras and some moss for their enclosures to boot.

    I also ordered an ooth, and instead of just one, I received two. Both look great. Shipping was prompt, and contents were packaged with care. Excellent service all around!

    This spring, both of our original hives swarmed. We were able to capture two swarms, bringing us up to four hives. The bees have been testy(fluctuating weather, I think), so I've gotten my share of stings. How is everyone else doing with their bees?

    The turtle wasn't happy but needed to be relocated.

    Nice color on that female budwing. Looks like you won't be needing an ooth after all. ;) Good going on the Otomantis as well!

    You won't regret it. Honey aside, for me, it's very rewarding. Everyday, I walk over to the hives, stop, and watch the bees go about their business. They are an entertaining addition to the yard.

    Sports that you play or have played

    As a young kid, my sports enthusiast father "encouraged" me to play baseball and basketball. In high school, I settled on tennis until the coach and I mutually decided to part ways. This was due to my oppositional behavior at the time—not something I'm proud of. Recently, I've started playing...
