  1. This is a video I shot on Monday morning, September 4th, just before 08:00 local time. By moving the mother hive I split this nuc from, and putting the nuc in its place, this caused all the foraging bees to return to the nuc rather than to the mother hive. (I rang James (jimmyboy) to confirm what I needed to do at the time. I was fairly sure, but not 100%, as to what I needed to do with both hives after the split.) Anyway, this video is from the following morning, after we had completed the split. They were bringing in resources as fast as they could, to that little nuc. Hopefully, I will be able to make another split very soon, from that same mother hive.
  2. These were taken from the upper brood boxes. Tomorrow, we will look at the lower brood boxes.

    Vaporizer arrived today.

    No, my bees don't have bronchitis. I don't either. It's for mite treatment of the hives, if, or when it becomes necessary. Another $125 USD added to what I have paid out for beekeeping. If, or when I begin having problems with Varroa mites, I will have something to combat them with. So, why did I buy it before I have a mite problem? Well, because it took one month, to the day, to arrive from the US. I would rather have it and not need it, than not have it and be in a world of poo-poo. Definitely a tool to have on hand, along with the Oxalic Acid that came with it. This little jewel, when connected to a 12vdc battery, of suitable Amp Hour rating, will heat the acid up and turn it into a vapor. The vapor will then move throughout the hive and destroy the mites, without harming the queen bee, the bees, their brood, or their stores. (You would not keep honey supers in place during an OA treatment, though. They would need to be removed from the hives and all bees taken off the frames.) After treatment, you would repeat this process two more times over the same number of weeks, to make sure the hives were cleansed of the vast majority of mites.
  4. Something I didn't know, was how much honey you can hope to harvest from beehives throughout the year. In the interview linked below, Jeff tells a local news reporter (he's in Louisiana) that he tried to harvest 400 gallons per year, from 43 hives. That's 1,514 liters of honey, folks!
