Beekeeping through the seasons
Evidence the bees are alive and well in winter.
This picture of Dan's hives show how the bees have created enough warmth to melt the snow on the lid of the hive.
This is the month when we organize Iotron treatments. Iotron is about using an Electron Beam (E-Beam) Sterilization, to help with Pest and Pathogens that can cause problems with your bee equipment
This is the month when a hive could swarm. Check bees on the first sunny day after a rain and see if they are preparing to leave the hive. Contact our club if you see a swarm!
Hives need attention this time of year. Adding Honey supers provide space for bees to collect maximum honey.
Bees should be flying out. Hazelnuts and Pussywillows, snowdrops are early pollen producers that bees love and need at this time of year.
Bees are active this time of year. Make sure the queen has enough space to lay eggs and that bees have the opportunity to get out and gather food.
