bee swarm

Spring and into early summer is "swarm season" for bees, and it's a truly spectacular event! A bee swarm occurs when an older queen leaves an overcrowded hive to make room for younger bees. She takes her greatest fans with her for protection and they head out to find a new hive location. A swarm can settle anywhere... even on the side of a car... but often in a bush or low on a tree. The queen lands and is completely enveloped by her protective clan where they hang for a few hours or even a few days while scouts find a new location. The swarm is docile and not aggressive since they are not protecting their food source. They can be still or active while they monitor and regulate the queen's temperature and cool or warm her accordingly.

ADUs (Accessory Dwelling Units) and 'Granny Flats' may be in motion again in Wheat Ridge. I’m excited and am looking forward to the first meeting, on April 12. They are seeking discussion and I hope others will join me. 

There is a clear issue around affordable housing in metro-Denver. Our City is growing whether we like it or not. This may be one small way that we can help, without negatively impacting the character of our community, assuming its done well. 

This is a topic that has been discussed a lot in my family. My parents moved to Texas 18 years ago to take care of her parents. They sold their $180,000 Lakewood townhome when they moved. Their Texas home hasn’t gone up in value and now they’re priced out of coming back to Denver. I
