Welcome - Explore my Blog

I've been keeping this blog for all of my beekeeping years and I began my 12th year of beekeeping in April 2017. Now there are almost 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

Bees passing nectar through SBB


With the robber screen on, robbing has stopped, but the bees are using the screened bottom board as a way to pass nectar into the hive.

Maybe I should now remove the robber screen when I next inspect the hives.



The other way they are passing nectar in is through this crack opening on one side of Destin where the screen isn't held too tightly. Posted by Picasa

  1. Tropholaxis is certainly a common sight for hoenybees. I guess, essentially, they're doing the same thing at the enterence that they would usually do inside anyways. Nice photos...
