I think I said "It's SO hot" 37 times yesterday. The humidity has hit Cincinnati!

These girls are also feeling the heat. See how fast they're moving their wings? When we arrived they were beginning to leave the hive and fan it, basically nature's way of making a ventilation system. #beesarecool

Visited our bees yesterday 🐝! One of our hives decided to #swarm so the BeeVital team came to put the colony back in its hive box. Submit to our newsletter to receive our #VitalWednesday issue about swarming. Link in bio! #SaveTheBees

I get lots of questions about 'what can I do to help the bees (and other pollinators)?' This is a massive subject and there are loads of things you can do - I promise to discuss these in various future posts. However, perhaps the most immediate thing you can do is to stop doing something! By not mowing your lawn and allowing dandelions and other wild flowers to bloom you will be helping bees and other wildlife. I realise  this may be challenging for those that need a functional lawn or enjoy the bowling green stripes, but maybe you could offset this by leaving some part of your garden wild? #nomowmay @plantlife.loveplants @rspb_love_nature

am vizitat @gradinaistorica un proiect drag nouă pe care îl urmărim de ceva vreme. Am luat răsaduri de plante melifere - limba mielului și mătăciune moldovenească, o varietate veche de napi, frăguțe tătărăşti, isop şi sfeclă de frunze mangold pentru grădina noastră.  #taramulmierarium #ierburiuitate 🐝 .

Checking on my other #pets beside my chooks.  Honey bees are so important to our ecosystem, they are responsible for pollinating one third of the food we eat.  Imagine what would happen to our food crop without them. .
.

Here are some fun facts on the physics of #honeybee flight.  Have you ever wonder why bees make buzzing sound?
.
.
.
.

Answer:  It’s the rapid wingbeat vibration when they flap their wing.
.
.
.
.
Do you know how fast they flap its’ wings? .
.
.
.
Answer:  Between 200-230 times per second depending on their size.  The smaller it is the faster it flaps. •

Late autum, but it is +25C here. 
Bees need water all year round, 💧but especially on hot days. 
You can set up an easy water station that will be frequented by honey bees and native bees.🐝
Use an old pot, fill it with sandstones, add water, find a shady spot for this water station. Don't change water in it, just add fresh water every week or two. Bees can't swim. Stones in the water station will provide a safe landing spot for bees.
Biologists believe that bees probably find most of their water by scent rather than sight, so a water source with a smell will be more attractive. Water that smells like wet earth, moss, aquatic plants, better chance of attracting a bee than sparkling water straight from the tap. Sandstone will absorb water and soon will grow moss. Bees love drinking from the moss.

The Trade Fair on Thursday night turned into a huge success. City Slicker Honey managed to win the award for best display and finished the night with the most sales overall. The YES program is an awesome scheme designed to help young people, like us build businesses and learn how to run them. A huge thank you for the opportunities we were given. 🐝

In January 2018 fires threatened an association's huge apiary in Santa Barbara, CA.  Daily we watched as the fires closed in on the area of Montecito.  A huge sigh of relief occurred when the fires were stopped and the apiary spared.
•
On the 9th of January a rain hit in the middle of the morning causing the barren soil to give way and a mudslide gave way.  Curtis, the president of the SBBA narrowly escaped through his back window and stayed near a tree for safety.
•
As he watched the red glow of an exploded burning gas line and mud and trees flowing acting as battering rams, he saw both the massive and diverse apiary as well as his home destroyed.
•
For the last year the Santa Barbara Bucket Brigade has recovered many lost belongings and have returned them to their former owners. I have replaced the recovered MUB hives with replacement hives and have the recovered ones on display.  They held up very well by the way!
•
The recovery is still ongoing.  The SBBA (Santa Barbara Beekeeping Association) is now replacing lost equipment and rebuilding.  Bees come from cut-outs, swarms, and bee management as costs to replace colonies have dramatically increased.
•
Here are some of the photos from the trip and the past.

Anyone have suggestions on replacing/rearranging frames when a  queenless hive has filled almost every brood cell with pollen or honey? •
On the plus side, my new queen will inherit a lovely hive chalk full of pollen, honey, and very sweet tempered girls.

Went to pick up a swarm today that was over an hour away. We arrived at the house, knocked and explained to the gentleman why we were there and that his wife called us. Said we came for the swarm and he says, “they left yesterday.” Lol well the lady told us they were there and sent pictures and videos....someone was confused on their days. #beekeeper #beekeeping #backyardbeekeeping #pennsylvania #zachheaton #thesecretlifeofzachheaton

“Don’t let go Jackie, never let go!” “Ease up Rose, we’re on the lid.” I love when they festoon. Also, I don’t know why I’ve been giving them lines today. 🤷🏻‍♀️

During what I thought was my last inspection for this season, this looked like a normal frame of capped honey...which it is...but then we held it up to the sun ☀️ The dark spots you see are simply a different kind of honey 🍯 from a different flower the bees visited 🌺 
Beekeeping teaches us to take a minute, relax, explore the hive, watch the girls behavior, be inquisitive, admire the amazing-ness of these little creatures.

I’m finally getting around to painting my new equipment.  I won’t be putting new splits into these, Scout’s honour. 😅🙈
In actuality, I desperately need to replace some of my old hive boxes. A full box of honey weighs 80-90lbs.  That’s a lot of weight for a crumbling piece of lumber held together with a few old nails and a prayer.  I feel like it’s a small miracle that I haven’t had one fall apart on my yet.  The last thing I want is to be covered in broken honeycomb and 60,000 angry bees. 😱
In other news, the long Lang is finally finished! It just needs to be moved into it’s new location and filled with bees.  You can bet I’ll be documenting my learning process with it.

Before Sunday's inspection it had been weeks since I last peeked inside the hives.  All the rain made it impossible to check on them and I had a feeling they were starting to fill up their starting super. •

When I finally did go in and check on them, my theory was right and the super of one hive was completely full.  So full I even found some potential signs of a #swarm . •

Naturally I added a super, and while I could have split the colony I decided to put a bait hive out instead.  The white hive was my original bait hive, but since bees prefer homes that are high off the ground I needed to find another option.  Fortunately, this #nuc box was still in my car as I had yet to return it, and it made for the perfect bait hive. •

Will I catch a swarm? Who knows! Stay tuned... •

Trying this new centuries old Norwegian yeast that has come to us via the US and Brisbane. 
Hopefully speed up the brewing process and give a good result 🤞
Made with some awesome Gherang honey.

PSA: if you see a swarm or clump of bees, (hanging from a tree or anywhere else) call a beekeeper, not an exterminator ✌🏻🐝 #swarmseason

Tis the season to buy bees! @oc_beekeepers_association is great resource for instructional classes, I definitely did it wrong the first few times I bought packaged bees. Long before there was YouTube 😂

EGO, AND BEES. 
No one has learned the meaning of life until he/she has surrendered his/her ego to the service of the bees.

Bees have no ego.

There’s no way this hive is crowded enough to swarm. I hope it’s just because it’s the first sunshine they’ve seen in days. I wish I had time today to open them up and look. But I’m off to graduation in a few minutes. #backyardbeekeeping

Harvesting the first of the beets and sugar snap peas, and greens for everyone I know (there’s a second basket, not shown.) We also checked on the beehive and the ladies are looking great, building out their home and stockpiling honey. Sadly I forgot to take pictures. Spring is fully in bloom here in New Jersey and we couldn’t be happier. #njfresh #gardenstate #urbanfarming #backyardfarming #backyardbeekeeping #growyourown

There is a worker and a drone #beebutt in this photo. Drones have a round and hairy bum with no stinger-their rumps are dedicated for mating purposes. Worker bees, on the other hand are the females and their cute pointy bums contain a stinger to use in defending the hive if needed. Drones only mate once and honey bee workers only sting once. Both die after they use their bums bc their insides are ripped apart from their body. 😕#gobees #honeybees #apismellifera #beekeeping #beeklife #wecanbeeheroes #backyardbeekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #treatmentfreebeekeeping

Extra BUZZ with your coffee in the morning? Maybe it’s a hive in your walls!  Just visited a homeowner who loves bees, but not so much in her walls. We have people who can help, even on the holiday weekend. 🐝🇺🇸🐝
