Welcome - Explore my Blog

I've been keeping this blog for all of my beekeeping years and I am beginning my 19th year of beekeeping in April 2024. Now there are more than 1300 posts on this blog. Please use the search bar below to search the blog for other posts on a subject in which you are interested. You can also click on the "label" at the end of a post and all posts with that label will show up. At the very bottom of this page is a list of all the labels I've used.

Even if you find one post on the subject, I've posted a lot on basic beekeeping skills like installing bees, harvesting honey, inspecting the hive, etc. so be sure to search for more once you've found a topic of interest to you. And watch the useful videos and slide shows on the sidebar. All of them have captions. Please share posts of interest via Facebook, Pinterest, etc.

I began this blog to chronicle my beekeeping experiences. I have read lots of beekeeping books, but nothing takes the place of either hands-on experience with an experienced beekeeper or good pictures of the process. I want people to have a clearer picture of what to expect in their beekeeping so I post pictures and write about my beekeeping saga here.Master Beekeeper Enjoy with me as I learn and grow as a beekeeper.

New babies at Bermuda

Every hot night my two hives have bees hanging out on the front porch, but tonight finally Bermuda looks like there's a much bigger group than in the past. Probably this means that the amount of brood hatching is finally catching up to Destin (the hive on the right)...

Here's an up-close look at Bermuda with the thick group of bees gathering on the porch at the end of the day.

Tonight I'll need to build a couple of extra supers to have on hand - I'll bet these girls are working hard to fill the current honey supers and that when I inspect this weekend, I'll need to add a new one. Posted by Picasa

    I love your Bee Blog - I'm a new beekeeper myself, and it's nice to hear someone else's adventures. Great photos, too.

  2. Why is the lid propped up on your hive? justmewdc@gmail.com

  3. Did you find that keeping the honey bees on the deck help keep hive beetles away--no soft ground underneath the hives in which they could pupate?
