Welcome - Explore my Blog

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.

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.
