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.

Queen rearing has been going on for two weeks now in California. The bloom of the almond trees is in full gear. Pollen is coming in in largequantities. The weather has been warm. The drone rearing colonies are loaded with bees. All this adds up to great queen rearing conditions.
I have kept bees for 28 years and run 25 colonies. We have changed our business name to Bees and Honey LLC. We are still selling honey at our Stillwater location.
Honey fills (still in Stillwater) anytime but please call
