My wasp swats have had a busy couple of days. On a side note - In a contest between gaffa tape and hot glue, gaffa tape wins - hands down. #@beesforburnaby #bcbees #beekeepersvancouver #beekeepingcanada #honeybees #savethebees #beekeeper #bees #feedthebees #beekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #beekeepingbc #bcbeekeeping #backyardbeekeeping #waspswat #gaffataperules

The break in the weather gave me a chance to inspect the hives. I'm pretty sure most of the natural nectar is gone as they have been drinking down 1:1 syrup at a rate of a gallon per hive every few days. I've gone through 75 lbs of sugar in 2 weeks! Looks like there is still plenty of pollen around though. #beek #beekeeper #beekeeping #savethebees #beesofinstagram #beesareourfriends #apismellifera #apiary #urbanbees #urbanbeekeeping #rooftopbees #bees #buzz #beehive #honeybees

Ita: Il blocco di covata è una biotecnica molto utilizzata in apicoltura. 🐝🐝🐝 Uno dei suoi impieghi più frequenti è in vista del trattamento anti-varroa con acido ossalico. Esso, infatti, ha la sua massima efficacia in totale assenza di covata, agendo solo sulla varroa in fase foretica. 💪💪💪 Parlare di blocco di covata è però molto generale. Per ottenere il medesimo risultato si può operare in diversi modi. Nel nostro nuovo articolo del blog parliamo di quelli più comuni!😉 Puoi leggerlo sulla nostra pagina fb o facendo swipe up dalle stories! 🚀 - Eng: The brood block is a biotech widely used in beekeeping. 🐝🐝🐝 One of its most frequent uses is in view of the anti-varroa treatment with oxalic acid.

My new baby, Wil arrived on Sunday and it has been a whirlwind of a week. Absolutely no painting is happening, and rightly so! We are all snuggles and exhaustion. I did want to share this bee that I finished before Wil’s arrival. Prints, stickers, magnets, and cards are up on @etsy @winsorandnewton #sunflowerbee #sunflowerpainting #beeonsunflower

Baby bees waiting to hatch 🐣#urbanbeekeeping

. Soggy Bees So down in Texas we’ve had a lot of rain. It’s still hot inside the hives and the humidity is off the charts. With all the bees required to stay home on a rainy day, many still choose to beard near the entrance. Some will die after hours of continuous rain but these girls are making it so far. #gobees #savethebees . #entomology #beehive #allthingsbees #apiculture #abeille #ruche #apiary #пчеловодство #bienen #abejas #urbanbeekeeping #pollinators #backyardbees #inspirationpollination #bugslife #gardening #growyourown #backyardgarden #yardtotable #nature_of_our_world

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.

Follow that queen! Here is Queen Freddie Mercury looking for some empty cells to lay eggs. Queens lay in average 1500 eggs per day! The youngest bees stay in the hive and take care of the brood

Yay, today is pretty exciting recieved my queen (shes marked with the green dot) in the mail today to try and save the animal hospital colony, I really wanted a Russian queen so getting her was kind of an ordeal especially during this time of year, but she made it here!

Becoming involved in beekeeping has an odd effect of giving you a sense of kinship with other beekeepers. Sometimes the sense of a beekeeping family extends over vast distances. We love meeting interesting or inspiring bee folk when we travel. This week we had the chance to meet with this chap who is involved in the local level of the @britishbeekeepers Association. It was awesome to chat similarities and differences in beekeeping and philosophy from on the opposite side of the pond.

Post varroa check clean up.

When I was growing up, honey cake for Rosh Hashanah was...let's just say, not great. It's almost Rosh Hashanah 5780 and honey cake ain't what it used to be. This cake, adapted from @busyinbrooklyn is AMAZING. Of course, using raw honey from my hives is ideal and the taste of the honey really comes through. I don't use the caramelized apples in the recipe, but you certainly could.

Two remarkable things are happening here: ☝️ Forager bees are bringing in pollen. Honey bees have a sort of sheath in their hind legs where they can pack protein-rich pollen to feed their babies back in the hive. Notice the beautiful yellow-orange pollen pants on the one bee. ✌️ Forager bees are bringing in nectar. Notice the 6 bees grouped above the pollen bee; they are partaking in a process called trophallaxis. A forager will return to the hive with her honey sac (like a second stomach) full of flower nectar. At the hive entrance, she’ll ‘beg’ another worker to take the nectar she’ll regurgitate, which will be passed on to the next worker until it reaches the honey comb cell it will be stored in. 🌈 The more you know 🌟

It’s not snow, it’s sugar! This week I had to unite a strong colony of bees with one who lost their queen and wouldn’t survive the winter alone. Bees from two different hives usually fight if put in the same space but if you cover them in sugar, they can’t tell the difference. By the time they’ve licked all the sugar away, everyone’s firm friends! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bee #bees #beekeeper #urbanbeekeeping #gay #gaybeekeeper #apiary #homefarm #homestead #homesteading #savethebees #pollen #hive #pollinators #interesting #instagood #beehive #honeycomb #honey #instagay #beesofinstagram #gaysofinstagram #bienen #abielles #نحل #aww

Don't miss out! Tim & Nicole of @detroithives 🐝 will be joining us at Place Shapers - Detroit as they lead a session on our urban beekeeping and sustainable ecosystems in our cities 🌿 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These two dove headfirst into beekeeping after they discovered the critical role bees play in our health and food supply. They work in collaboration with artists on a national scale, and have received serious recognition for their work (including recognition just this week by the City of Detroit!) It was such a privilege to visit them and see their hives on our recent visit to Detroit. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Take advantage of an opportunity to work directly with the two of them as they co-lead our "Keep Bee-ing" session on Friday, 11/8. Get tickets now for this session and two days of other exciting hands-on learning opportunities at the link in our bio!✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #goticco #citylabontheground #aia #usgbc #asla #urbanfarming #urbanfarm #urbanbeekeeping #urbanbeekeeper #liveablecity #thisplacematters #cityplanning #greenbuilding #communitydevelopment #urbandesign #urbanplanning #communitydesign #urbanism #urbanist #socialentrepreneur #historicpreservation #landscapearchitecture #transportationengineering #incdev #publictransportation #urbanplanner #landscapearchitect #citiesforpeople #builtenvironment #citybuilder

Cuando comenzamos la sección de ZUMBIDOS ya os avanzamos que las entrevistas no se realizarían solamente a apicultores, sino también a personas relacionadas de alguna manera con el amor hacia las abejas. Con el proyecto de ABEJAS EN LA CIUDAD queremos difundir la grave situación a la que estos insectos se enfrentan, y como todos (adultos y niños) podemos ayudar en pro de su supervivencia. Por eso hoy estamos muy contentos de presentaros a Alison Jay, autora e ilustradora de libros infantiles como “La Abeja y Yo”, publicado en España por @edjuventud. Ya hablamos sobre este maravilloso libro de amistad entre una niña y una abeja hace unos meses, y ahora os presentamos a su autora. En la entrevista nos cuenta la inspiración detrás del libro, algunas de las actividades que algunos niños han llevado a cabo (con consecuencias reales en sus municipios) gracias a “La Abeja y Yo”, entre otras muchas más cosas.

Breakfast time 😊

Wanted to pop in and introduce this lovely local family who have agreed to document their journey to becoming backyard beekeepers for me (Marty) on the left. Erika and her kids Meg and Joe have an interest in beekeeping and young Meg caught the bug 🐝 attending a workshop at @vue_at_jindivick last Summer So these guys are going to be popping onto my socials from time to time over the next 12 months to show exactly what is involved in urban/backyard beekeeping. Why? Because it may be easier or harder than you think and I want to make sure that you don’t not do it because you’re scared or do it and then regret it later. Bees are fascinating little creatures but having a bee hive is not a set and forget pet. They require maintenance, health checks and more and I want to be as transparent as possible. The returns are great. You get lots of delicious honey - and I mean seriously delicious! You get a set of expert pollinators for you and your neighbours. You get to learn all about these little buzzy bees we often take for granted because lastly, and most importantly, you get to contribute to their food security and provide a safe place for them to thrive. I don’t need to spell out why this is important. So I hope you enjoy following this family’s story here and over at @gippslandlocavore If at any point you have questions or comments, please comment away or get in touch with me. _ #hiveskillsaustralia #urbanbeekeeping #backyardbees #savethebees #warragul #gippsland #honeybees #pollinatorgarden #pollinators #apiarist #localhoney

Is it weird that I’m geeking out at my car load of just acquired beekeeping bits and bobs? I very kindly got given flow hive frames which allows for honey on tap. Really sad to see two amazing people who started the hives with us move on to a new journey in their lives, but completely blessed to have met them and have them in my life.

Beeswax foodwraps are great but why bother folding them to make a snack pouch when you can just use our new Beeswax Snakpaks. Made with the same materials but sewn together by us! Just fold the top over, warm it up with your hand and BAM! It's closed up. Send your kid to school with carrot or veggie sticks. Throw some trail mix in it for a hike or store stuff in the fridge.

We've been quiet over the last while as we have been watching everything grow. But we are now into the harvest season and starting to see the fruits of our labour! Here are some glimpses into what our suppers have been looking like! The hive has started to slow down as they shift gears to prepare for winter. A strong queen has taken control and the attitude inside has definitely changed with her lead. So far this year, we have harvested over 50lbs of food! That includes honey and vegetables. And we still have plenty in the ground! Stay tuned for our shift to winter mode...we aren't done yet! . . . . . . . #beekeeping #beekeeper #honeybee #savethebees #urbanbeekeeping #urbangarden #squarefootgarden #eastcoast #growyourfood #growyourown #growyourveg #growwhatyoueat #livesustainably #frontyardgarden #harvest

Hi, all! This honey was produced by thousands of lovely little ladies of whom I give a helping hand. This is my first ever season of harvesting my own honey, so I’m very excited to share it with you! 🍯 I use organic treatments, I leave the girls lots of honey for the winter, and am so gentle with them that I can often work them with shorts, a t-shirt, bare feet, no gloves, no veil, and no smoker. All the honey in these pictures were made by the same beehive, in the same location. I harvested honey 3 times throughout the season which gave me 3 distinctive colours and flavours. The difference between each of these jars is simply the nectar that the bees gathered from different flowers! 🌸 I’ll be in Kelowna until the 28th of Sep, let me know if you’d like a jar 😊🐝 I have 2 sizes: One is 1.5 pounds, the other is 3. #urbanbeekeeping #honeybee #okanagan #honey #bees #garden #homegrown #local #buylocal #pollinator

Hollywood here I come! 😎 Who’s coming to @thesill tomorrow night for a honey tasting and to hear me talk about how honey bees are like plants? 🌿 I think most of the analogies people try to make about honey bees are wrong. I don’t consider them livestock animals. I think they are more complicated than that. In my talk tomorrow night I’m going to reveal the fascinating lives of bees and draw parallels to plants. Plus, I’ll talk about what’s involved with becoming a beekeeper and you get to taste honey! Still a few tickets left. Link in my bio and stories. 🐝🐝🐝

Wasp season. Fall is typically wasp/robbing season. These two smaller colonies are more at risk than the bigger stronger hives. A nuc sized robbing screen for one and for the other I thought I would try the tube deterrent (?wasps don’t like to go into them?). I cant say the wasps will never go into them but I think the tube makes it a lot less appealing and harder for the wasp and hopefully they will move on to easier pickings. @BeesforBurnaby #bcbees #beekeepersvancouver #beekeepingcanada #honeybees #savethebees #beekeeper #bees #feedthebees #beekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #beekeepingbc #bcbeekeeping #backyardbeekeeping #robbingscreens #waspseason

How adorable is this honey and bee kitchen towel from @shopatsmallbatch 🍯⠀ We are big fans of California Wildflower Honey for our skincare, but we 💛 the idea of tasting a fresh local honey from North Carolina from @harboursidegardenco!⠀ 📷 shopatsmallbatch⠀ ⠀

Treatment Day. Finally a break in the weather to apply Formic Pro (organic Formic acid treatment). Our mites levels have been low to non-existent all year (yah) and I had all but decided we wouldn’t need a fall treatment (why risk the queens if you don’t have to). At the last minute (precautionary panic) we decided to do half of the single strip 10 day x2 treatment (as opposed to the double strip 14 day treatment - more risky). After which we will do a alcohol wash mite count and decide if we need to do the subsequent 10 day single strip treatment. Bottom board entrances need to be open but given that its wasp season I made a vented guard with a single opening in the middle. Top feeders off. Observation boards in. Treatment strips placed over the brood nest. I put the screened inner covers on for extra ventilation. Finally say a little prayer. @BeesforBurnaby #bcbees #beekeepersvancouver #beekeepingcanada #honeybees #savethebees #beekeeper #bees #feedthebees #beekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #beekeepingbc #bcbeekeeping #backyardbeekeeping #formicpro #falltreatment #mitetreatment

No these bees aren’t twerking their way into the weekend, this is called the Waggle Dance. Yeah literally scientifically called that. This is how successful foragers come back and share the exact location of nectar and pollen. Pretty cool right?

Interesting inspection on Destiny Hive. They were absolutely BOOMING a few weeks ago so we decided to add the @flowhive frames in the second box, added the excluder, and tossed up some prayers. It looks like they didn’t touch a thing in the Flow super, but ran out of space and swarmed. 🤷🏼‍♂️ half the hive is gone along with #queenyoncé. They did leave some supercedure queen cells so 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻. Now we wait! #applekingapiary • • • • • #bee #beekeeping #beekeeper #honey #apiary #urbanbeekeeping #nature #blog #photography #healthy #healthyfood #flowers #healthylifestyle #diy #natural #organic #lifestyle #style #savethebees #honeybees #beekeeperlife #pollen #beginnerbeekeeping #apiculture #hobby #california #sandiego #usa

With the help of our three hives the blackberries are SLAMMING. This will bring amazing pollen and nectar into the hives 👏🏻 Feeders needed to come off as even the smallest amount of dried simple syrup brings big ant problems. With those off the bees should be able to totally focus on drawing out comb and foraging pollen and nectar. 🐝 #applekingapiary • • • • • #bee #beekeeping #beekeeper #honey #apiary #urbanbeekeeping #nature #blog #photography #healthy #healthyfood #flowers #healthylifestyle #diy #natural #organic #lifestyle #style #savethebees #honeybees #beekeeperlife #pollen #beginnerbeekeeping #apiculture #hobby #hobbybeekeeper #california #sandiego #usa

Fiona Apple Hive inspection was interesting, the hive looks to have swarmed. Their population was so big and with both of us in and out of town the second box didn’t get on in time. The good news is that before they swarmed the hive did a good job laying “princesses” (@maryiromney😜) to supersede and take over. They just need to hatch and have their death match to decide which princess gets the crown. In the meantime the half that remain are definitely acting grumpy and queenless! #applekingapiary • • • • • #bee #beekeeping #beekeeper #honey #apiary #urbanbeekeeping #nature #blog #photography #healthy #healthyfood #flowers #healthylifestyle #beard #natural #organic #lifestyle #style #savethebees #honeybees #beekeeperlife #pollen #beginnerbeekeeping #apiculture #hobby #hobbybeekeeper #california #sandiego #usa

The school path hive was doing well enough to get renamed Fiona Apple Hive. They’ve attached comb, are cutting the rubber bands, and pulling them out in a nice little pile in front of the hive. They definitely needed space so since our @mannlakeltd order hasn’t come yet Craig jimmy rigged a bottomless nuc box to suffice. The AntCant “solution” for Valhalla hive didn’t work AT ALL, but the colony seems to be keeping them out. Bees also seem to have found the pond about a quarter mile away and are loving it. There are always helping hands learning the ropes! ❤️🐝 #applekingapiary • • • • • #bee #beekeeping #beekeeper #honey #apiary #urbanbeekeeping #nature #blog #photography #healthy #healthyfood #flowers #healthylifestyle #beard #natural #organic #lifestyle #style #savethebees #honeybees #beekeeperlife #pollen #beginnerbeekeeping #apiculture #hobby #hobbybeekeeper #california #sandiego #usa

First inspection about 8 days after input was 10/10. Lots of pollen going in from all over, tons of eggs and capped brood, and their drawing out nicely.
