I’ve found you can’t be lazy if you are a bee keeper. This isn’t a job for people who are lazy, don’t want to seek knowledge, and afraid to get dirty. I had to carefully lift this whole stand, put the plastic down and stones. Due to the sugar water, ants began to come to my newly installed hive; which has an inside feeder. I got anxiety and couldn’t sleep but I sought knowledge and found how to prevent ants, and not to worry as much since they are more of a worry to me then the bees. It’s only once you remove the sugar water, and if ants still come and the bees can’t get rid of them, you could potentially have a weak hive. I put in some work. Thankful the honey comb is coming along, and next I’m going to add another box soon and some flowers and herbs around the box. (On Saturday, I have a bee hive inspection)
Holy smokes! A ton of bees and they aren’t ours! We may have just caught a swarm in one of our open hives! More photos and videos to follow in the upcoming days! Crossing my fingers for a swarm that stays :) #beekeeping#honeybees
Every once in a while when doing a hive inspection, it's good to pull out some drone (male bees) larvae to make sure that the bees are forming correctly + that they are parasite free.
What you see pictured are actually developed larvae of regular worker bees, not drones, but you get the idea.
Why just check drone cells? Well, because the drones don't serve any main roles outside reproduction in the hive. That being said, sacrificing a couple is for the good of the colony + losing one will not slow down the overall colony growth.
Day 12: Sawing trees, grooming horses, tending fires, and the bee stings have all finally caught up with my immune system, so I took care today. Here’s a slow motion pan of Michael’s girls in macro exposing their Nasonov gland and fanning the pheromone of the same name; doing so tells the forager bees to come back home.
