- POINT SOMBRE - Une dose d'énergie rien qu'en regardant ce cadre, c'est bon pour un lundi matin. Des alvéoles remplies de pollen, pour les stocks d'hiver. Chaque couleur correspond à un type de fleurs, ainsi on observe que la nature est variée, même en septembre. Mais cette photo colorée, dynamisante a pourtant un point sombre. Un varroa est bien visible sur une de nos abeilles. Ce parasite, responsable en partie, de la perte de nos colonies l'année passée, est toujours présent. Un fléau de l'apiculture. Le voyez-vous ? . . . . . . . #bee #abeille #apiculture #apicultura #beekeeping #apiary #beekeeperlife #varroadestructor #beesofinstagram #backyardbeekeeping #pollen #pollenation #honeybee #abeja #ruche #beehives #apiarylife #apismellifera #honigbiene #nature_photo #beelovers

It’s hot in LA. And beehives (and also us humans who insist on living in mid century homes without renovations) don’t have AC. We noticed a lot of bearding happening at our beehive entrance which we learned is what the bees do when it’s too hot inside for them AND their honey and larva to all exsist together - or, as I like to say, they decided to sleep on the porch for the week. In an effort to prevent them from swarming, @photobysina built a temporary ventilation system for them. See the green layer w vents on the side? It’s an empty screened frame to allow hot air to escape. Thank you, bee bloggers and youtubers.

Found a cocoon on one of our brood chambers in storage.. It seems like everyone and everything likes honeybees and their homes! We put our empty honey supers on a wax moth preventative today. Wax moths ruin honey comb and equipment! The white stuff in the third pictures menthol. The moths hate the menthol! #nowaxmoth #honeycomb #bee #honeybee #savethebees #apiarylife #beekeeperslife #bogroadhoney

Fun Fact: Goldenrod is not giving you the sniffles this time of year ... Ragweed is the culprit! Unfortunately, Goldenrod gets a bad rep because it is the more obvious and plentiful wildflower this time of year. . . Goldenrod's pollen is verrrrry heavy (as far as pollens go!) and the plant is therefore not wind-pollinated (you would more or less have to shove it up your nose to be affected by it!). Bees LOVE it for both its pollen and nectar - they use the abundance of goldenrod in late summer/early fall to build up their food stores for winter. There are about 100 different species of goldenrod in North America and they vary in every way imaginable, but there are 3 more commonly found varieties in Canada and all are a variation on the yellow-flowered theme with many spear-like leaves. . . Ragweed, on the other hand, has long spear like flowering ends that range from light green to greenish-yellow (hence why it is often confused with goldenrod) but its leaves are much different. They have multiple little leaflets that are almost fern-like. Very distinct. The pollen is very light and the plant is easily wind-pollinated which can lead to a variety of seasonal hayfever allergy symptoms for humans. . . So there ya have it ... feel free to LOVE on the goldenrod. Leave it to flower for the bees without worrying about its pollen making your eyes water ... and enjoy its gorgeous golden colour! #macquarriefamily #ragweed #goldenrod #hayfever #seasonalallergies #pollen #fallforage #honeybees #savethebees #apiarylife #beekeepingadventures #knowbetterdobetter

Our last sunset in #montreal. We even found bees on the roof of @HotelMonville managed by local company @alveolebuzz 🐝🐝🐝. Thanks to all the team at @apimondiabees for a great week. 🐝🐝🐝 #apimondia2019 #apisprotect #bees #bee #honeybees #apiculture #apiarylife #nature #pollinators #beekeeper #beekeeping #apiary #apismellifera #savethebees #beehives #savethebees #agtech #apicultura #science #healthybees #montreal

Measuring the water content of my honey today. Nectar is 50-70% water, depending on the flower. The bees dry it all off by evaporation, warming it and flapping their wings. Once its dropped to 17-18% they put a cap on it. If you harvest your honey too soon it can ferment.

The bees are not happy with me. I am treating with Formic Pro. They hate the smell. It's a fairly strong organic treatment but the mite counts are high so it requires the nuclear option. They will settle down this evening and the worst of it will have dissipated in a few days. Formic acid occurs naturally in honey so it does not harm the honey or the beeswax in any way. It smells like strong vinegar. #bees #honeybees #apismellifera #apiculture #beekeeping #beekeeper #beesandflowers #beekeeperslife #apiarylife #apiary #myjobiscoolerthanyours #somersworthnh #rockyhillapiaries #nhagriculture #nhlife #newhampshire #beesinthegarden

Brody served as our photographer today during hive checks. We should be able to pull at least one super of honey. 😏

Back on dry land and have just finished the autumn honey harvest. No need to wash up; you just leave your tools out and your bees gobble up all the leftovers to keep for winter! These will be picked clean of honey and most of the wax capping by tomorrow. Such clever little creatures! . . #apiary #apiarylife #beekeeping #beekeeper #honey #bees #nature

Before becoming a beekeeper, I was an indecisive person. I have since learned that nature doesn't wait for you to make a pretty pros and cons list, ask friends for advice, or "sleep on it." In this hobby you have to make a lot of game-time decisions and then learn from your successes or errors.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ A few weeks ago we split a thriving hive, only to discover that both new queens refused to lay. Our "mental bee math" told us we needed to build these hives FAST if we wanted them to survive a #cincinnatiwinter.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ That unfortunately didn't happen, so we decided to combine the two failing hives. Hive 1 is the top and bottom green box and Hive 2 is in the middle. The newspaper allows them to become familiar with the other's scent and slowly adjust. After a few days, they will hopefully be one big, happy family. Now we just need this #queenbee to cooperate!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #bee #bees #honeybee #honeybees #beekeeping #beekeeper #backyardbeekeeping #apistogramma #pollinator #apiculture #apiarylife #savethebees #beehive #beehives #beecolony #requeening #beekeeperproblems #newspapermethod #combininghives #letitbeecincy

We have bought ourselves a queen. #longpostalert We can’t quite believe this season is drawing to a close and we can honestly say we are looking forward to tucking our girls up for the winter. Our first season has been quite the learning curve, beekeeping is most definitely a game of chance. Some of peers in the apiary have had an enormous success with their honey harvest while others like us have face difficulties. Back in May we received our nucleus of bees and we were full of hope and excitement at what the season had in store for us. After two weeks our lovely queen left the building, we patiently waited as our new queen emerged, went off to get mated and returned to lay. We had maybe two or three weeks before she too did a vanishing act. We waited once more as our third queen emerged and went off to get mated. This time she didn’t return, she may have been eaten by a bird or got caught in the rain, we will never know. Our bee buddy Stuart kindly donated a frame of eggs for us. Our girls drew out some emergency queen cells, unfortunately they didn’t look very substantial and the queen that emerged was far to small. Also being the end of August it was a risk to see if she would come back properly mated. We made the decision withy he help of our mentors to buy a mated queen to hopefully get our colony through winter. The pictures show how a mated queen is introduced to a hive. She is in a cage with some of her ladies in waiting with a lump of fondant. Our bees will accept her pheromones in the time it takes her to eats her way out the cage. This way our bees won’t attack her as an intruder. All that’s left for us this year is to spin the small amount of honey we have and we will be returning to the hive mid October to do a last inspection and winter preparations. Whilst we know bees don’t read textbooks we are hopeful for a little more straight forward 2020! Thank you for following us. 🐝

the hive tool gets all kinds of bee material on it from propolis to honey. So it needs to be cleaned every now and then. If you have a metal hive tool (which our hive tools are) you can throw it in the dishwasher if you are in a hurry, or you can simply wash it with soap, warm water, and a cloth. #bee #bees #australianhoney #honeycomb #nature #photography #honey #yellow #honey #beeswax #wax #beeswaxcandles #honeybeeswax #flower #photo #photographer #healthy #natural #nectar #pollen #pollencollector #insta #instagram #aussiebees #beemagazine #beehive #beebrush #beekeeper #beekeeping #apiarylife

Such a bee-autiful day for a hive check! A couple of hours and 5 bee stings later we now know that all queens are alive and quite some brood, eggs and larvae are developing yet...winterbees in the making. It's time to get the honey supers of and start with preparations for winter. To bee continued!

A busy Saturday for us! After a cold @topochicousa and some AC we did some hive checks at one of our apiaries. Everyone looks great! We brought “The Beast” with us for some quick yard work- aka- @cubcadet_usa string mower. We have found the bees are least bothered by this vs a weed eater or other mowers. #bee #bees #honeybee #honeybees #beesofinstagram #beesareawesome #beelife #blinderhund_ranch #beelife #beekeeper #beekeepers #beekeeperslife #apismellifera #beekeeping #queenbee #apiary #apiarylife #pollinators #beegurus #apismellifera #apiculture #apicultura #savethebees #texasbees #texasbeekeeper #texasbeekeepers #yardwork

Molly got a bee suit!! 🐝 #beelife #apiarylife #goodgollymissmolly #momlife *Yes, she will wear gloves and shoes when helping with the bees.

We received a call to relocate a hive which the owner was no longer able to manage. They were a little “feisty” to say the least. We closed up the hive last night and picked them up first thing this morning. We decided to split the hive- dividing the honey and brood between hives and we now wait. We wait for the hives to sort themselves out and settle down- then we will requeen. Splitting the hive will break brood cycle for any pests. #bee #bees #honeybee #honeybees #beesofinstagram #beesareawesome #beelife #blinderhund_ranch #beelife #beekeeper #beekeepers #beekeeperslife #apismellifera #beekeeping #queenbee #apiary #apiarylife #pollinators #beegurus #apismellifera #apiculture #apicultura #savethebees #texasbees #texasbeekeeper #texasbeekeepers#saturday

The hard work of a season pays off but, there’s another season on its way, followed by another and another and another. I guess what I’m saying is, there’s always work to be done not matter what time of day or season we’re in. Even the bees know this. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Being a business owner, mom, and a wife means my work is never done. I have an entire website update for 2020 happening which includes an entirely updated online store. I’m working on class, workshop, and presentation schedules, getting studio work done, managing the kiddo’s school and hockey schedules and maintaining my household. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• It’s often daunting and tiresome but the end results make it all worth it. My late summer honey harvest is almost all bottled up and will be finishing up the labeling once I fix a typo 🤭 and will be available in time for autumn and winter! Local Raw Artisan Honey makes a delicious gift for the holidays. I’m extra excited about the labels too! It’s my first time with clear labels. A bit more challenging but so worth it. #honeyharvest #beeawareness #honeybee #beekeeping #beekeeper #beekeeperlife #apiary #apiarylife #apiaryartist #apairy #loudouncounty #queenbee #lovettsville #loveloudoun #northernvirginia #bee #bees #beephotography #honeybees #gentlebeekeeping #naturalbeekeeping #beekind #beepeople #sustainability #honey #honeyvarieties

Word gets around quickly in the hive. I gave these bees some syrup yesterday. In just a few seconds they'd found their way into the tray and were tucking in.

Montez le son, écoutez ce rythme, celui de la ruche, celui des abeilles en pleine activité. Des réserves de miel pour l’hiver, du couvain fermé qui promet de futures abeilles d’hiver, du pollen aux couleurs acidulées, source de nourriture variée. Ce genre de rencontre, nous met en joie. Ce rythme, cette vibrance, nous accompagne jusqu’à la prochaine visite. Voilà le bonheur simple d’un apiculteur.

Nature's wasp trap! Everything has it's place in the food chain. I've been watching this spider for a few weeks and haven't seen her catch a bee, only flies and wasps. She's a welcome resident 😊 Wasps can be detrimental to bees as they can attack a hive for the honey or brood (protein). A strong colony will defend themselves with their guard bees and having a smaller entrance to the hive at this time of year is a good call 🕸️🐝🕸️🐝🕸️🐝 #beeeducateduk #bee #bees #beesofinstagram #beekeeper #beehive #savethebees #honeybees #apiary #apiarylife #honey #honeycomb #localhoney

Today hasn’t been the greatest day for P.O. Box Honey. This would be a great time to tell you about absconding. Absconding is when a colony of bees vacate the cavity in which they have been nesting in. This can happen for many reasons such as starvation, disturbances, fires, too much wind and they can even leave if a beekeeper opens the hive up too often. Today during inspection we arrived on our various sites to find 3 of our hives looking very much like the ones in this post. Nothing is more disheartening than to open up a hive and to see empty frames and abandoned comb. It’s all part of the process of growing though, a slight step back but we will continue the fight and carry on doing what we are called to despite the short term disappointments! 💪🏻 #backyardbeekeeping #apiarylife #beekeeperslife #beekeeping #bees #honeybee #apismellifera #eatlocal #buylocal #nature #insectsofinstagram #apiary #honey #honeycomb #beehive

After work stop to see the kids. Tomorrow we are finally doing hive checks. It’s been a couple weeks. Hoping honey stores look heavy enough to take a bit. #tjhsapiary #tjhsbees #beekeeper #beekeeping #apiarylife

Anytime I cut out cross combing I save the wax. If there is honey in it I put it out for the bees to clean. Since we crush and strain our honeycomb when harvesting honey, we have lots of wax leftover. The bees clean this up too and then we melt it in our home made solar wax melter -see picture 2. Beeswax can be used to make numerous products like candles, soap, lip balm, hair products, and beeswax wraps.
