Anyone keep hives for the sake of the bees rather than for the honey?
Been curious about this for a minute, but I'm not all that interested in the relatively small quantity of honey you'd get from a few hives. We're in a pretty rural area in Florida where I think they'd do really well, but I almost never see bees around; 95% digging wasps, 4% bees, and 1% cicada killers. Been considering putting together a few boxes just to let them try and get a foothold in the area. Anyone else keep them around for this purpose alone?
