    Default NewBeek: A video diary. Hive Inspection

    I opened my hive a couple days ago and decided to video tape myself doing it this time. So I set up my Canon 7D and all my expensive professional sound recording gear and shot myself inspecting my hive. It's not easy to work with the bees and shoot a video. The bees were very patient with me and put up with my silliness.

    Please enjoy my follies!

    Great video!! I think you did a very good job. One little fact, the color of pollen does not always indicate the color of the flower. My one concern, and you mentioned it, is walking around on loose rocks while working the hive, when it gets bigger and you have to remove a 80 pound box to get to the bottom one it will be even more treacherous. Great job in my opinion!! Thx for sharing.

    I'd recommend a small table next to the hive or at least an extension on your stand to put ur smoker and tools down on with a frame holder. Good looking queen btw. To keep bees off the edges of the frames, when you slide the frame back in, slide the frame down til the wide part of the endbars touch and then gently continue to slide it down and it'll push bees out of the way if they're on the edge which they typically do to get at the exposed propolis.
