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!

Yellow jackets robbing the beehive

In front of Bermuda, there were scores of dead bees and yellow jackets today. I have recently seen the yellow jackets congregating outside the front of the hive about a foot from the porch. I guess robbing happened and bees and yellow jackets died.

When I inspected the hives today, I put the entrance reducer on both hives. If the yellow jackets continue their assault, I'll put the robber screen back on the hives. Posted by Picasa
