I've been keeping this blog for nine years and I began my 10th year of beekeeping in April 2015. Now there are about 1270 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. Along the way, I've passed a number of certification levels and am now a
Master Beekeeper Enjoy with me as I learn and grow as a beekeeper.

The inspection continues - part two

I'm using the hive tool to separate the medium from the brood chamber deep hive body on the bottom. I pried the two sections apart as gently as I could.
Now we're down to the bottom level. This is the brood chamber - LOOK AT THE BEES! There are bees by the thousands in this hive.
What can I say! Look at the bees
Here I've lifted the hive body off of the screened bottom board - look at the bees hanging on the bottom of the hive body in the upper right corner of the picture. I loosened the bungee cords to the robber screen, but it fell off with a crash and bees went everywhere. Look at all of them flying above the SBB. Posted by Picasa
