    I made a video of what I believe is robbing at one of my hives. However I dont see any deads, little if any wax fragments at the opening, and rarely any fighting. Inside the hive, above the second hive body, everything is calm, and filled with bees. I am resisting the desire to open the hive...

  13. Welcome Forum
    Hello, I am new to this site, and new to beekeeping. I have been wanting to keep bees for years, but never wanted to make the investment. A friend of mine gave me a suit, and I got hooked.

  14. Alternative Pollinators
    Can someone tell me what they think this species might be? I just noticed these in my garden for the first time today. They're a bit larger than a honeybee, but not as large as a typical bumble bee. Also, their flight is very similar to the orchid bee in that it tends to hover like a hummingbird...
