The seasons hotting up so its time to start breeding more queens and get some ' splits ' going, at the home block. Small 5 frame nuecs with a new queen cell and 2 frames of nursery bees, these small hives will boost or strenghten any weaker hives, #honeybees #honeyseasoniscoming #smallbeekeeper #rawhoneynz #manukahoney #beesarelife🐝🌸 #hives #apiarylifenz #backyardbeekeeper #barefootbeekeeper #realhoney #beesofinstagram #mahurangihoney

So. Cool. ... This hive has been fairly quiet of late & today was no different. I was there and there was almost Zero activity. 30mins later I was back and saw this. It’s mostly young bees doing their orientation flight - their first time out of the hive. The fly in front of the entrance, facing it, “programming” their internal GPS to ‘home’. 🇫🇷 Trop. Cool. ... cette ruche est assez calme depuis un moment. Aujourd’hui encore c’était le cas. 30 min après mon premier passage je suis de retour et je vois ceci... c’est un vol d’orientation où les jeunes abeilles (qui sortent de la ruche pour la première fois) passent quelques minutes à voler devant la ruche, face à l’entrée. C’est ainsi qu’elles “programment” leur GPS interne. . . #honeybees #soleildartifice #orientationflight #buckfastbees #hobbybeekeeper #backyardbeekeeper #ruchewarre #apiculture #apicoltura #apiculteur #hobbybeekeeping #lotsofbees #amazing

Yep, you're reading that right. Those one jar took that much work by our honeybees. Gives the term "busy as a bee" whole new appreciation. . . . #honeybees #beekeeper #backyardbeekeeping #backyardbeekeeper #beefriends #busyasabee #homegrownhoney

Have you ever considered sharing your beekeeping skills at a local school? Many of our members volunteer at schools all through Nashville, engaging children to the natural world through bees and beekeeping! 🐝Mr. Smith is meeting with NABA - Nashville Area Beekeepers Association Mr. Larry & Mr. Seth! They’ve been special guests at Garden Club and Power Monday. Their bee lessons are phenomenal! #honeybees #savethebees #pollinators #beesofinstagram #beelive #bees #beekeepers #beekeeping #apiary #apiculture #beekeeperlife #backyardbeekeeper #urbanbeekeeping #workerbees #honey #beesofmiddletennessee #nashbees #beesofnashville #loveyourhoney #pollen #whitsittelementary

🐝 We did our last honey pull for 2019, and as first year beekeepers I feel beyond lucky! Late last year I stepped out of my comfort zone, after I had been daydreaming of becoming a beekeeper, and called a local beekeeper to ask how I get started. He introduced me to an amazing class, allowed me to care for a few of his hives, and answered all my questions. He even showed me how to bottle and generously lent me equipment and knowledge and some major bonus honey comb for our efforts! If you see B&C Bees honey around, support him and buy his honey! Our bees worked for us to receive 39 pounds of honey this year thanks to our mentorship with Bill. @farmermat89 #backyardbeekeeper #backyardfarm #liquidgold #beespit #firstyearbeekeeper

Our honey going on my yogurt this morning. Thank you to my honey for taking care of the honeybees 🐝 who made this honey to share with us.

Whenever we are working with our bees at @hinterlandbees, it is always inspiring to see how quickly they move in to clean up any honey spills. 🐝 Such is the value of their precious liquid gold that not a drop is lost if they can help it. The willingness to clean up probably is a survival instinct as well, preventing the opportunity for bees from other colonies to rob this hard-earned resource. 🐝 Quite often the colony will build a little comb in the lateral space between frames which is exposed when the frames are removed from the hive. When this happens, we try to be patient and let the clean-up gang do their thing. Call us lazy, but we would rather leave the cleaning up to the bees. Besides we also see the value of saving every drop, particularly considering current conditions. 🐝 We are pretty lucky to have a decent amount of nectar coming into most of our apiaries at the moment. While it is very dry and large areas of the country are in a drought, the decent rain we had a few months ago is still deep within the soil, and while the paddocks are looking brown, the trees are doing well in comparison. . . -- © Reposting our content is fine, provided it is not modified.

Хранение рамок с сушью актуальный вопрос для пчеловода, ведь при неправильном хранении к весне можно остаться без рамок с сотами, их съедят личинки восковой моли. Методы хранения у всех разные, начиная от серных шашек, заканчивая тяжёлой артиллерией в виде отравы. Для себя мы выбрали экологически чистый способ хранения суши, т.к. нам не всё равно в какую тару наши пчелы складывают мёд 🍯 Охладитель потребляет не слишком много электроэнергии, а за счёт постоянно заданной температуры наши рамки хранятся в целости и сохранности круглый год. А как храните сушь вы?

And share your fall Pollinator or Hive photos for a special Blume Box! Post and tag us on Instagram + #liveinfullblume by October 31 to be entered to win!

Une petite démonstration de la manière de travailler en ruche Schneider. La vidéo est en accélérée pour que vous ne vous ennuyiez pas trop et pour tenir sur Instagram. Néanmoins, j'effectue ici une visite approfondie : je dois évaluer les réserves de nourriture, en noter la quantité pour chaque cadre. Je dois aussi vérifier que la reine est présente et a suffisamment pondu. Bref, tous les cadres sont manipulés et reçoive de l'attention. Cette vidéo m'a permis de me chronométrer : entre 3:30 et 4 minutes pour la visite complète, en tenant compte du fait que je dois noter la quantité de nourriture entre chaque manipulation. En ruche suisse, cela me prend facilement 10 à 12 minutes. En ruche Dadant, je ne doute pas que l'on fasse moins (je serais curieux de le savoir), mais tout de même, je n'arrive pas à imaginer une maniabilité plus grande que sur Schneider. C'est vraiment un plaisir de travailler avec une telle aisance ... #honeybee #beesofinstagram #beehive #ilovebees #beekeeping #busybee #beekeeperslife #honeybees #hive #beelove #rawhoney #beekeepers #bees🐝 #apiculture #beehives #apiary #savebees #pollinating #workerbees #carnica #backyardbeekeeping #backyardbeekeeper

Worker bees possess salivary glands in their head and thorax that discharge near the base of the proboscis. Their secretions are used to clean the queen’s body and also added to wax for softening when being manipulated. #beesinthebackyard @beesinthebackyard #thewisdomofthehive #thomasseeley

In town for @farmaid this weekend? Two of our farm-to-glass session meads made from raw, local honey will be on tap! If you’re going to the show, bee.sure to stop by for our cold, dry, and carbonated session mead. Feel more like a kombucha? Great news, our booch (made with organic green tea) is on tap too. Stop in the Hive Thursday through Sunday to try one of our other small batch, rotating tap session meads, just down the road from @alpinevalleyamphitheater

After all the uncapping is done, there is always some honey sticking to tools, frames, in cells, on the wax...everywhere! The bees help us to clean that off and take it back to the hive: a win-win situation 😊 #amazing_world_of_honeybees #honeybees #apismellifera #honingbij #apiary #beeyard #imker #beekeeper #localbeekeeper #backyardbeekeeper #honey #rawhoney #unpasteurizedhoney #honey_extraction

A bit delayed posting this to IGTV, but it's a 6 monthly check up on my gifted hive (Stumpy hive). A little unconventional in design, but works well for my Austros. They're very calm and lovely to deal with, unlike the Tetragonula species I have...

Beekeeping Tips: The beehives should be located in areas where the bees can get an easy and continual supply of nectar and pollen. 🐝⁠ Tag a friend who's interested in beekeeping 😉⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ www.mydadshoney.com.au⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #organicbeekeeping #beekeep #thebeekeeper #beehoney #womenbeekeepers #beekeepersnaturals #beekeepingadventures #queenrearing #beegurus #beekeeping #beekeepinglife #beesofinstagram #apiary #beekeeperslife #honeybees #beesarecool #beestagram #beeyard #surfacetension #bluebandedbee #beekeepers #backyardbeekeeper #beekeeper #beekeepers_macro #beekeeperlife #beekeepersofinstagram #urbanbeekeeping #beelife #naturalbeekeeping #beeslife

Things can go bad really fast. This hive started in March from a large swarm that moved into an empty hive. It turned out to be the strongest and highest producing hive I had. On September 1st, I removed 4 supers of honey (about 140 lbs.) and prepared it for the upcoming winter. Everything looked fine. I noticed on September 15 there was very little activity at the entrance so I popped the top off and saw this. No bees other than a few robbers and the start of a bad wax moth infestation. There are two species of wax moth, the greater and the lesser. This particular infestation is by the greater wax moth. Because I don't use any chemicals or treatments in my hives, I rely on a healthy colony to deal with the relentless attemps of the wax moth to gain a foothold, but in this case something caused this colony to collapse and they got the upper hand. The female wax moth lays her eggs in cracks and crevices. When the larva hatch, they burrow through the comb at the midrib in search of pollen and honey, destroying the comb. At the end of the larval stage, they will spin a cocoon and enter the pupal stage before emerging as an adult. #bees #beekeeping #honeybees #beekeeper #backyardbeekeeper #backyardbeekeeping #backyardbees #urbanbeekeeping #sacramento #localhoney #honey #honeybee #eatlocal #savethebees #endangeredspecies #conservation #colonycollapse #waxmoth

. *BEE-ING ALIVE* 🇮🇹Vedi quegli occhi che spuntano fuori dalla cella al centro del video? Quella è un'ape che sta per iniziare a farsi strada tra i tappi di cera della cella. Tra pochi istanti si schiuderà, ma la cosa più sorprendente di tutte è che non appena sarà fuori troverà una goccia di miele ed entrerà subito a far parte delle api operaie. . 🇬🇧See those eyes peaking out of the cell in the middle of the video? That’s a bee just starting to chew her way through the wax capping of the cell. In just a few moments she will hatch. And perhaps the most amazing thing of all, as soon as she hatches from the cell, she will find a quick drop of honey and step immediately into her role as a worker bee. . #beekeeperslife #backyardbeekeeper #flowerporn #fioreria #flowering #flower #flowergift #lavanda #camposdelavanda #lavanderfields #honey #beehive #picoftheday #firstpost #beekeeper #fiore #fiori #savetheplanet🌍 #savethebees🐝 #saveourplanet #beehive #flowhive #hive #love #nature #nationalgeographic #green #bees #lovely #cute

“P” is for Pollen... always cool to look inside the hive & see what’s going on. Bees stock pollen to feed the young bees... it’s a rich protein source. 🇫🇷 “P” c’est pour Pollen. C’est toujours un plaisir d’ouvrir la ruche et de voir ce qui s’y passe. Les abeilles stockent le pollen comme source de protéines pour les jeunes abeilles... . . #fms_p #fmspad #pollen #nectar #beekeeping #apiculture #ruchewarre #abeilles #apismellifera #apicoltura #apiculture #apiculteur #backyardbeekeeper #hobbybeekeeper #interesting #funfacts

"So...how does it work that the honey spins out of the frame?", is a frequently asked question...: When bees are done evaporating water out of the nectar they forage, they seal the cell in which they stored it with a bit of wax: a "capping". The nectar now is honey and is ready for the bees to use as food. It is their pantry and we make sure it is stocked to the brim! The surplus is the stuff we harvest and can be food for people. If we want to extract the honey, we first have to remove the cappings with a fork or knife, then we can spin it out in the extractor.

Today was nematode day! One of our hives has hive beetles. 😕After a TON of research, we thought we would try introducing teeny tiny nematodes to the ground around the hives. Nematodes eat the beetle larvae (along with fleas and ticks -- which is great for our pups) that are causing issues in our hive! Fingers crossed, this works!! Anyone have any luck with this tactic? #susstainhoney #backyardbeekeeper #nematodes #beekeeping #naturalsolutions #savethepollinators #worthashot

We planted 2 pear trees this past spring... and today, we picked our harvest! Two whole Bartlett pears! 😊 We are pretty excited...especially since the other five fruit trees we planted 3+ years ago still haven't produced any fruit! 🤷‍♀️ #susstainhoney #backyardbeekeeper #pear #peartree #ourownfruit #growwhatyoueat #freshpicked #fruittreesinmybackyard

My son and I did another kindy bee talk this morning. The kids in senior kindy at @sesamelane were very excited to ask questions and see a real frame of honeycomb up close. The white stuff is ice - I put the frame in the freezer over night :)

We chose to pull the remaining supers off in 94 degree weather and I highly suggest it if you like saunas in a bee suit. This extended rain period has given the 🐝s ample time to fill in the gaps to prepare for winter. Some extra wet honey will need to be dried before extracted but I get to take part in the extracting process tomorrow for the first time and I am so looking forward to it. If you need honey & are local - I would be honored to supply ☺ #backyardbees #backyardbeekeeper #smallfarm #supportalocalfarmer @farmermat89

Très belle rencontre aujourd'hui ! Celle de Camille Rithner, aujourd'hui à la tête de la mythique entreprise familiale qui, dès 1921,fut l'un des premiers fournisseurs de matériel apicole en Suisse romande. C'est grâce à mes multiples casquettes que j'étais à Monthey aujourd'hui, @rogg4n y prépare une expo photo. J'ai profité d'une pause pour faire un tour au bout du "Chemin de l'Apiculture" où se trouve le magasin-menuiserie. En Suisse, quand on s'imagine une ruche, on imagine généralement un petit chalet avec un toit à deux pans. Et bien il s'agit, dans la plupart des cas, d'un ruche Dadant de chez Rithner. Elles sont fabriquées sur place de manière artisanale. Au jour de la superproduction internationale, le marché s'est vu saturée d'offres super-cheap, souvent de qualité médiocre, mais les ruches Rithner demeurent synonyme de qualité suisse. Le magasin a gardé un cachet des années 1930 absolument irrésistible, le tout dans une bonne odeur de cire d'abeilles. J'avais souvent commandé du matériel chez eux, mais je ne m'attendais pas à avoir autant de plaisir à visiter ce magasin qui a, pour les apiculteurs, des airs de musée. On se croirait dans un fantasme des commerces de la belle époque digne d'Harry Potter... Quoi de plus charmant qu'un magasin de matériel en bois ? 😉 #honeycomb #honeybee #propolis #beehive #pollen #beekeeping #busybee #beeswax #honeybees #hive #beekeeper #rawhoney #beekeepers #bees🐝 #apiculture #beehives #apicultura #savebees #pollinating #workerbees #buzzybee #backyardbeekeeping #backyardbeekeeper

Its not painful but a bee sting can make your finger swell up to turn your knuckle into an innie. The itch can be crazy 😳

So this is what happens when you plan to come back and add a feeder in the top box of a growing nuc, but forget and open it 2 weeks later 🤣 These bees will build everywhere if given the space!! (the comb is already half full of brood and pollen, so we’ll have to take it off the lid and rubber band it to a frame so they can rebuild in a more permanent way). Always something to keep us bizzy! #beehive #honeybees #honeycomb #hiveinspection #beek #beekeeping #backyardbeekeeper

The bees really like sugar. By the last 4cups it’s starting to get pretty thick. I feed them a mixture of sugar water 1:1,” by weight. That means 1 gallon of water has 16.25 cups of sugars in it. Starting in October they will start to get 2:1 with 32.5 cups sugar per gallon! 🐝 #backyardbeekeeper #backyardbeekeeping #bees #sugarwater

One of my more popular products is creamed honey, sometimes called spun or whipped honey. None of these is a very good description. The best description comes from the UK, where it is called "set" honey. All liquid honey will crystalize in time. The rate at which crystallization occurs is most influenced by the glucose content and temperature (refrigeration will speed the process). The crystals formed will be coarse and angular, with a crunchy mouth-feel. Creamed honey is crystallized honey where the crystallization process has been controlled to produce very fine, oval-shaped crystals. The result is a smooth, silky, spreadable texture. #bees #beekeeping #honeybees #beekeeper #backyardbeekeeper #backyardbeekeeping #backyardbees #urbanbeekeeping #sacramento #localhoney #honey #creamedhoney #honeybee #eatlocal #savethebees #endangeredspecies #conservation

Austroplebeia australis check up time 📈 . . . I was gifted this hive, with one other, by an older fellow from one of my jobs. I harvested the honey from the lower end early last summer, and have since left it be, and the bees never skipped a beat. Now it's spring again, I've noticed a lot more brood in the main compartment, and honey stores in the top, middle and lower sections too - I only ever harvest from the lower section to avoid too much disturbance. But with the brood volume, it may be time to split them - I will wait a little longer til more is flowering thogg, as it's only the maca tree at the moment 💛 . . . #austroplebeiaaustralis #australiannativebees #nativebees #austroplebia #backyardbeekeeping #backyardbeekeeper #beeyourself #brisbanegarden #australiannativebeekeeper #backyardbees #balconybees #bees #meliponist #sugarbagbee #aussieanimals #sweetbees #homegrownhoney #freshhoney #anb #beequeen #pollinator #probiotichoney #rescuebees #stinglessbees #beesknees #ecologistlife #beesofinstagram #beekeeping #ecologist #nativepollinators

5 Days 7 Hours Ago

This sweet little bee ran into me a few evenings ago. I'd like to think she mistook me for a flower (I was wearing a mustard yellow shirt), but I think she might have been injured somehow. I tried to feed her some honey and hope she flew home later that evening. Either way, I loved our time together and it always reminds me that honeybees aren't scary, but magical. #savethebees #savethepollinators #backyardbeekeeper #beesaremagic #climerfamilyfarm

It’s smoky here from the fires but the girls are buzy as... both hives were active as well as the 3rd but I can’t stay in their flight path for long even for a photo shoot...🐝😁

5 Days 10 Hours Ago

Not perfect but a trial for this mold with my Girls 🐝beeswax and priming the wick.... Xmas is how far away? 101 days eek!!

It’s a rainy Saturday here today, but LAST weekend we harvested honey for the first time! In the first pic you can see we used a fume board on top of the honey super (the top white box) to drive the bees down into the main body of the hive. Then we put an escape board underneath the honey super so once the bees were out they wouldn’t be able to get back in right away- giving us a chance to make off with the goods 😉🐝 🍯 #beekeepers #beekeeping #backyardbeekeeper #backyardbeekeeping #savethebees #localhoney

I haven’t seen large numbers of dead bees for a couple of days now, thankfully. I opened up the hive to see what was happening inside. The activity outside has been almost unnoticeable so I didn’t know what to expect. Upon opening the hive, I noticed a lot less activity than normal but no dead bees thankfully. There were still lots of bees too! Examining each frame in the brood super, I found three queen cups and lots of capped brood but no new larvae or eggs. I didn’t spit a queen and most of the comb was being filled with honey. I think that I lost my queen somehow, so I am hoping a new one comes out soon and maybe the activity in front will start up again. I am grateful most of my girls are still alive. #firsttimebeekeeper #southfloridabeekeeping #backyardbeekeeper #flowhive #flowhives #learningasigo #savethebees #honeybees #polinators #beehives #beekeeping
