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.

Loading cell builders and finishing colonies in the queen rearing yard
Loading cell builders and finishing colonies in the queen rearing yard.
The cell building and finishing yard in full swing
My supplier is now making queens for the upcoming package bees. They are grafting larvae into queen cups. The cups are then added to a cell builder to feed the young larvae. After two days in the cell builders they are moved to the finishing colonies where the cells grow and are finished and capped. They are then ready for the mating yards.
I have kept bees for 26 years and run 50 colonies.
