    I have a new hive this year after loosing a hive last year. So far about 80% of the bottom 10 frame brood box is filled out, and in the second box they are just starting to fill it out. My bees are very slow this year, for comparison my other hive has already filled out both boxes and is working...

    I think it's important to teach people how to use the honey they buy... so that they buy more of course. I find it crazy their isn't a marketing board for honey which some sort of budget for promoting the product - If there is one it sucks :P. I'm taking things into my own hands by creating a...

    I did the reverse about 2-3 weeks ago. Both colonies were strong and healthy. I took the quilt box off, sugar brick off and put syrup as a feed. Bees were out and bringing some pollen back to hive. Flowers and trees were blooming. It felt like spring is here. Then it suddenly got cold and snowy...

    Hey gang, maybe I'm overthinking this: I want to set up my hive for winter. I have deeps for my brood boxes and smaller boxes for honey supers. My top deep is very busy in that it's full of brood, but there is almost no food. I have two supers on top, and one has almost 9 full frames of honey...

    Many species of wild bees, butterflies and other critters that pollinate plants are shrinking toward extinction, and the world needs to do something about it before our food supply suffers, a new United Nations scientific mega-report warns. (AP)

    Greetings, This is my first year of beekeeping, and my first post ever in a beekeeping forum - so please be patient with me ^.^ In a nutshell, my biggest question is: Can my hive survive on nothing but fondant for 12 more weeks of winter? the rest of the details follow... I am in a region...

    The food vendor seems unfazed by all the bees on the food she is preparing and selling.

    When I installed my 2 packages I filled the top feeders, about 2 weeks ago. 1 week ago I added 1 gallon of 1:1 at the first hive inspection to each feeder, just to top them off. I plan on doing the second inspection this Sunday. There were a few dead bees, not too bad really. I intend to keep...

    Modeling Food and Population Dynamics in Honey Bee Colonies When forager death rates are low, low food availability limits both the amount of food accumulated by the colony, and colony population size (Figure 2b). However as food availability increases, the amount of stored food and total hive...

    Has anyone had experience with commercially-produced sugar bricks, especially those containing HFCS (even in small quantities), as an over-winter feed?
