This blog is for beekeepers in Northern climates. I will be describing what I am doing with my bees on a monthly schedule.

This blog explains how I keep bees. It works for me, it might not work for you. Use my methods at your own risk.
Always wear protective clothing and use a smoker when working bees.

Trouble came a calling
The puncture pail opening method works best for bears.
The bear wanted some bee supplies.
I finally got a picture of this troublemaker. He ate a 5 gallon pail of Bee Feed without even taking the lid off. He used the incisor puncture method. I am sure he was very satisfied with that. This was 20 yds from my back door.
I have kept bees for 26 years and run 50 colonies.
