Welcome - Explore my Blog

I've been keeping this blog for all of my beekeeping years and I began my 13th year of beekeeping in April 2018. 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. 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.

There are bees in Persephone

Follow-up note: This morning in the rain, I opened Persephone to see if I needed to add a baggie feeder. There were bees sucking the last of the syrup out of the baggie currently under the shim - lots of bees. So I replaced the baggie feeder with a new one and breathed a sigh of relief, at least for now!

There were also at least 30 SHBs. I ignored them - didn't even give them the hive tool treatment because I wanted to get in and out of there in a hurry, but I noted that they are LIVING through the winter in my hive.
