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.

Hive Scale

I have my hive scale up and running. The hive weighed 198 lbs on last Sunday.
Thursday evening the hive weighed 216 lbs. The nectar flow is on around a good part of MN. Adrian from Hudson, WI had his hive scale go up 45 lbs in 8 days.
My friend who runs 200 colonies in the northwest suburbs recently checked his colonies and all of his yards had nectar coming in.
