  1. Re: Impressions on beekeeping with a Warré or Gatineau hive

    Warré hives still going strong. I am going to sort out all frames and return to frameless Warré hives. Since frames are a pain in a butt in Warré hives. :-)

    If the landscape doesn't provide it, make your own bee food:

    That is September.

    We care ourselves for the summer forage, because noone else does.

    Black berries blossomed at June the 10th, 2015. For two days there was lots of black berry pollen and that was it. Today the big surprise: supers were filled up to the rim with black berry honey! The...
  12. Re: Impressions on beekeeping with a Warré or Gatineau hive

    Interesting enough, the cornflower nectar flow is still going on, although most blossoms faded out. The bees fly at the brown blossoms, which do excrete nectar at the sides of the calyx. You can see...

    This is how the brood combs look like in the lower brood box right now.

    I like the corn flowers.

    Bees like it, too, and do profit from the rich food provision.

    Same size and honey gathering in that yard. Have three different lineages and although it remains a wild guess, I reckon it is due to lineage. Some friends of mine do find the same to be true when it...

    Bought them from Icko and modified them. I reckon you can buy the "pollen rake" from Icko loosely.
