Guys, a dumb question. How do you know when to feed? I mean, I have been feeding in periods were there is no nectar flow (duh!), but how can I read from the frames if my bees are low on reserves? When and how much to feed? I haven't found a metric such as # of frames with bees vs # frames with...
Due to the rain I wasn't able to make my first inspection until 9 days after installing the bees. I found and removed several pieces of burr comb - one that has a good amount of pollen and another that has a lot of clear nectar.
If I leave these by the hive, will the bees recover the pollen...
Hey guys took some sweet HD/4k video, Just me talking about my Hive watching the ladies bring in nectar/pollen.
Ill be making a good video with close ups of the comb, hopefully eggs and all the other goodies sometime soon.
I hope you enjoy!
It's so great to join your forum. I'm working with a group researching pollen and nectar data out of Bristol Uni. Would love to chat with a few of you and hear your thoughts! Feel free to check out our project http://bit.ly/comedinewithbee
