Where is your mentors farm? I'm also interested in keeping european bees. Hopefully, you could share your experiences and techniques.
By the way, my bees are just in my backyard currently and not in the farm. Soon, I will be relocating it so I could have many hives including honeybees.
Right now I'm trying to learn how to process propolis or where I could sell them in the future.
I have not yet heard about the bees having two queens. But now that you've shared it, I'll try to observed my hive.
do you have bees now?
its in lupon ,davao oriental...they are actually conducting trainings to those interested in keeping honeybees...i am really so interested in learning how to take care of KIyUt..maybe you can recommend some books specific to this specie?if u dont mind..
i Could ask my mentor if there is a market in propolis then il tell you if what is his answer..
i heard Kiyut propolis is much expensive than mellifera, twice the price they said..
