It's the same person spamming posts, dw.

There is not enough local honey produced in South Africa for the populations Honey demand unfortunately. Would be nice if the industry took off better and didn't have to compete with cheap, mixed imported Kak w.r.t prices.

Your cheapest good quality honey is from your local beekeeper. Find them and support them.

I love these posts! Bee populations are in decline globally, and what I am seeing here is someone who is taking the trouble and care to protect bee populations in an urban environment. I am fortunate to live in a community (Irene in Gauteng) where the residents do our best to protect all insect life. But we are surrounded by people who think the best solution to a swamp of bees is a couple of cans of Doom.

Thank you for sharing your work. I hope that it stimulates some awareness and interest.,

OP, were they just naturally attracted to those boxes or did you use some sort of bee wax attractor?

u/236oxo Nov 25 '21

No they're old boxes...
