A message from Simone Kerr:

Hello my beekeeping friends!
I am regretfully looking for a new home for my bees. We have been backyard beekeeping in Lexington, Kentucky for the past 6 years and enjoyed it so much. We love the honey our bees produce. On Sept 1, my 7 year old daughter went to the emergency department with a severe acute anaphylactic reaction to a bumblebee sting while picking berries in our yard. It was not her first sting so I was shocked to see her in such a way. We cannot keep our bees in our backyard any longer. We have 3 hives (they consist of 2 deep, 2 small super boxes, bottom and top board per hive). We have two hives with a 10-Frame Ultimate Cypress Hive Stand with West Beetle Trap & IPM Board Select Assembled. We also have basic tools, smoker, bee suit, and gloves that are negotiable, in addition to honey B well, and honey B healthy.
We are asking $250/hive. If you or someone you know is interested in these hives I can be contacted via phone, text, email. Simone Kerr 571-274-8319,
