Oh, you are in the other 5 points. I love that part of town. I bet your bees are happy with that huge alfalfa farm that is right by that Smith's. I have been keeping my bees since april of last year. started with 2 hives, captured a swarm and then did an extraction that was living in a roof. It was a pretty great first season. I  had four hives before winter. They seemed to all be thriving last week and now I am pretty worried about 2 of signs of activity around their entrance. I will keep you posted.
