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.

Checking Bees Today

A warm winter day, perfect for a quick check.

A nice strong colony covering 6 frames.

Tom D. checked his bees today. The weather was perfect. He did a quick check. Pulled off the winter cover. Lifting the top box slightly he said they felt heavy. This was a great observation. A lot of food for the masses. The bees will start rearing brood anytime now. His hives are in good shape for late winter getting ready for the spring build up.
