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.

Trail Camera Pics

I think this may be a coyote. It isn't clear but, the head seems too big for a red fox.

Buck foraging in the deer food plot.

I was a little surprised by this picture. Two bucks eating together. The rut has not started yet. I have recently started seeing deer in the dark while driving to work. They are starting to get into the mating season. Much to the delight of the auto insurance companies.
I have many pictures of deer and turkeys on my camera from the last two weeks. The bucks are being photographed only at night. When I start seeing them in the daylight hours then I will know the mating season is heating up.

This warm weather is great

The warm weather has been great. A few of my colonies that were a little weak have beefed up with some late season feeding. My light in weight colonies I have been feeding Pro Sweet syrup. The Pro Sweet is perfect for light colonies. The bees put in the cells and don't have to turn it to honey. Being there is no conversion by the bees and no drying to get the water out, Pro Sweet quickly brings the weight up on my colonies. I think if this weather persists for a little while, all of my colonies that I am going to winter will be looking sweet.
