Deze week moeten we nog even de boeken in want zaterdag hebben we examen. Spannend!

Look at those wings!🐝 Bergen still offers plenty of late pollen, which is needed to build a strong wintercrew this time of the year.🌻 #pollen #wings . . . #beekeeper #beekeeping #rooftopbeekeeping #backyardbeekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #beehive #honey #apiary #apiculture #abeilles #abejas #bee #honeybee #bees #bienen #imkerei #imker #bergen #birøkt #vindfløybybigård #vindfløy #bybibergen

Fluffy as a drone! The drones main pupose is to mate. But now that the mating season is over their services are no longer required. To get rid of unneccessary honey consumers during winter they are now being killed off by their fellow female worker bees.

Posted @withrepost • @vindfloy.bees The diversity of urban flora is reflected in the various colours of pollen.The pollen serves as the main protein source to build up a strong winter crew. Even this late in the season Bergen provides all that is needed, no substitutes required. 🌺🌻🌼 #pollen . . . #beekeeper #beekeeping #rooftopbeekeeping #backyardbeekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #beehive #honey #apiary #apiculture #abeilles #abejas #bee #honeybee #bees #bienen #imkerei #imker #bergen #birøkt #vindfløybybigård #vindfløy #bybibergen

The combhoney is about to get capped.

It's that time of the year again. Despite always being pictured yellow: bees are not yellow! If its yellow, annoying and coming for your food, it's a wasp, but the bees often get the blame. @instagram, what about some bee emojis, cause these are wasps -> 🐝🐝🐝 . . . #beekeeper #beekeeping #rooftopbeekeeping #backyardbeekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #beehive #honey #apiary #apiculture #abeilles #abejas #bee #honeybee #bees #bienen #imkerei #imker #bergen #birøkt #vindfløybybigård #vindfløy #bybibergen

Back in Bergen! Left for a 2 week Albania trip with very little honey in the hives. Came back to full supers of linden honey.🌳🌳🌳 The bees have been busy! . . . #beekeeper #beekeeping #rooftopbeekeeping #backyardbeekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #beehive #honey #apiary #apiculture #abeilles #abejas #bee #honeybee #bees #bienen #imkerei #imker #bergen #birøkt #vindfløybybigård #vindfløy #bybibergen

+++ON TOUR+++ Already Aristoteles praised the wealth of the Albanian bee forage with estragon mountain honey being one of the best of its kind. The macedonian honeybee (apis mellifera macedonia) shown here is adapted to the hot balkan summers and short winter periods and has been kept on the balkans for centuries. #albania #beekeepingalbania #apikulturë #blatari #balkans . . . #beekeeper #beekeeping #beehive #honey #apiary #apiculture #abeilles #abejas #bee #honeybee #bees #bienen #imkerei #imker #bergen #birøkt #vindfløybybigård #vindfløy

+++ON TOUR+++ I am currently touring through Albania and met up with Reshat and his wife Giuliana to learn about beekeeping in Albania. It has a huge tradition here and the two are keeping 120 hives at 1100 m above sealevel in the mountains where the bees are foraging on the chestnut trees. #albania #beekeepingalbania #apikulturë #blatari #mountainhoney . . . #beekeeper #beekeeping #beehive #honey #apiary #apiculture #abeilles #abejas #bee #honeybee #bees #bienen #imkerei #imker #bergen #birøkt #vindfløybybigård #vindfløy

Beekeeping romance in the norwegian mountains. Heatherhoney is a big thing in Norway. My beekeeping friend @baerli.bees just moved all his 150 hives to the heathlands at 900m above sealevel to catch the late season heather flow.

Its hot in town. The ventilation crew is working hard to keep the hive temperature constant by collecting water, evaporating it on the comb and circulating the air by sitting at the entrance and fanning with their wings.☀️☀️☀️ . . . #beekeeper #beekeeping #rooftopbeekeeping #backyardbeekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #beehive #honey #apiary #apiculture #abeilles #abejas #bee #honeybee #bees #bienen #imkerei #imker #bergen #birøkt #vindfløybybigård #vindfløy #bybibergen

Today I was called to pick up a fellow beekeepers swarm at the @hordaland_no building in Bergen. In this urban environment it chose a window with a meadow print as the best spot to rest.

Beebrood. These larvae will soon be capped for their metamorphosis and up to 2000 fresh bees hatch per day this time of the year. #brood . . . #beekeeper #beekeeping #rooftopbeekeeping #backyardbeekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #beehive #honey #apiary #apiculture #abeilles #abejas #bee #honeybee #bees #bienen #imkerei #imker #bergen #birøkt #vindfløybybigård #vindfløy #bybibergen

Broodframe from todays inspection. If the queen has enough space she does not randomly lay eggs or fill up frames one by one. She lays in a specific spiral pattern working herself from the center of one frame to the next and back again, continuously widening the broodnest ring by ring on several frames at a time. This creates a ball shaped 3D nest stretching over several frames. The patterns have already been described by Ferdinand Gerstung in his 1905 book "Der Bien und seine Zucht". His studies served as the scientific baseline for Bruder Adams work when developing the buckfast bee. . . . #beekeeper #beekeeping #rooftopbeekeeping #backyardbeekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #beehive #honey #apiary #apiculture #abeilles #abejas #bee #honeybee #bees #bienen #imkerei #imker #bergen #birøkt #vindfløybybigård #vindfløy #bybibergen

TAKEOFF! 🐝 Polar winds brought snow over night and temperatures dropped to 8°C at daytime.🌨 The bees desperately require water to properly feed their brood. Luckily the sunny rooftop already heats up quickly in the sun allowing them to gather water from the wind shielded puddles nearby.

The apiary on the @Grieghallen rooftop is growing fast.

The bees need plenty of water to raise brood for the season. Instead of open water they prefer moist soil/wood as a source. A leaf covered puddle close to the apiary was buzzing with life today! 💧💧💧 #water #thirstythursday #thirsty #puddle . . . #beekeeper #beekeeping #rooftopbeekeeping #backyardbeekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #beehive #honey #apiary #apiculture #abeilles #abejas #bee #honeybee #bees #bienen #imkerei #imker #bergen #birøkt #vindfløybybigård #vindfløy #bybibergen #beegurus

Too low too low! 😮 The bees are thirsty and need plenty of water for rearing brood for the season. The rooftop puddles are very popular these days! #griegbees . . . #beekeeper #beekeeping #rooftopbeekeeping #backyardbeekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #beehive #honey #apiary #apiculture #abeilles #abejas #bee #honeybee #bees #bienen #imkerei #imker #bergen #birøkt #vindfløybybigård #vindfløy #bybibergen

The beauty of solidifying beeswax. Wait for it! 😯 ... We use wax foundations in our frames. A bunch of agricultural pesticides, fungicides, miticides and other varroa treatments are not authorized in Norway. Therefore we have extremely clean wax and unlike many other countries no problems with contamination. To keep it that way wax is generally not imported but cycled in a closed loop. All beekeepers melt their old frames and deliver the wax to @honningcentralen that produces and redistributes foundation back to the beekeepers. #beeswax #wax . . . @processvideo #processvideo #timelapse #chemistry #physics #beekeeper #beekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #beehive #honey #apiary #apiculture #abeilles #abejas #bee #honeybee #bees #bienen #imkerei #imker #bergen #birøkt #vindfløybybigård #vindfløy #beegurus #bybibergen

One of the great advantages of rooftop beekeeping: While its 0°C in the shadows the dark tarpaper rooftop warms up to14°C in the sun creating a microclimate around the hives that allows them to fly. Here they are tanking up on much needed water from a melting puddle. . . . #beekeeper #beekeeping #rooftopbeekeeping #backyardbeekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #beehive #honey #apiary #apiculture #abeilles #abejas #bee #honeybee #bees #bienen #imkerei #imker #bergen #birøkt #vindfløybybigård #vindfløy #beegurus #bybibergen #norskbirøkt

DIAGNOSE BOARD UPDATE. About 3 weeks ago i showed an image of a hive that just started breeding but the lack of brood cappings indicated no emerging brood. In addition to the wax plates (white) and honey cappings (yellow) there are now also brood cappings (orange) and pollen traces (red). The first 2019 bees have hatched! No need to open the box to know that the queen is fine and back in production. . . . #beekeeper #beekeeping #rooftopbeekeeping #backyardbeekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #beehive #honey #apiary #apiculture #abeilles #abejas #bee #honeybee #bees #bienen #imkerei #imker #bergen #birøkt #vindfløybybigård #vindfløy #beegurus #bybibergen #norskbirøkt

Found this norwegian honey can from the 50ies at a fleamarket. Traded it in for a jar of honey 🍯 #honey . . . #beekeeper #beekeeping #beehive #apiary #apiculture #abeilles #abejas #bee #honeybee #bees #bienen #imkerei #bergen #birøkt #vindfløybybigård #vindfløy #beegurus #bybibergen

In winter you can tell a lot about the state of the colonies without opening them simply by checking the diagnose board under the hive: fresh food wax cappings (orange) show they are alive, are consuming food and occupy 4-5 gaps. The varroa downfall (red) points to a successful oxalic acid treatment and the fresh wax flakes (white) indicate that they started breeding again and are capping cells. If you see these it might already be too late for oxalic acid treatment!! Yet the lack of darker chunkier brood cell cappings shows that there is no new brood emerging yet. Also no bee-, waxmoth-, mouse- or bug- droppings visible. All on track, 2 months to go! :) #beekeeping #honeybee . . . #bybibergen #beekeeper #beekeeping #rooftopbeekeeping #backyardbeekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #beehive #honey #apiary #apiculture #abeilles #abejas #imker #bienen #imkerei #bergen #bergen #birøkt #vindfløybybigård #vindfløy #beegurus

Dry and 3°C. So I opened some hives these days for oxalic acid varroatreatment and was happy to find them going strong and healthy in their winterclusters. Quite nice to see how some of this years nucs evolved (bottom row). Hope to see them all back in spring, looking forward! 🙂 PS: Only open hives in winter if absolutely necessary! #beekeeping #bees #norskbirøkt #norgesbirøkterlag #cluster . . . #bybibergen #beekeeper #beekeeping #rooftopbeekeeping #backyardbeekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #beehive #honey #apiary #apiculture #abeilles #abejas #imker #bienen #imkerei #bergen #birøkt #vindfløybybigård #vindfløy #beegurus
