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.

Will the Robber Screen Work?

This view looks down into the robber screen from the top. You can see that the top allows the bees entry to the hive. At the time I installed the robber screen on Bermuda, the bees were furious and climbed up and down the screen from the outside.

I didn't have the right length of bungee cord, so for the moment, I have rigged it together with three cords and the fence. I'll fix it tomorrow.
When I came home tonight, the bees at Bermuda had for the most part, found their way into the screen and are clustering inside the screen for the night. There are a few on the outside - wonder if they are unable to find the HUGE upper opening! Posted by Picasa
