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.

Chickens love drone brood
Terry McD had some loose burr comb that was all drone comb. She inspected some of the drone brood and saw Varroa mites attached to the brood. So a fitting end for Varroa Destructor. She is pulling her honey supers and starting to treat with some ApiGuard
I have kept bees for 28 years and run 25 colonies.
