Какво ще правите

First, we will we will don a bee suit, along with a hood and gloves, before delving into the hives. Next we will complete the below tasks, in no particular order.

- Lightly smoke the hive sedating the bees.
- Break the propolis and beeswax seal to open the hive.
- Learn about the life cycle and individual work rolls of the honeybee.
- Help to locate the queen bee - there is only one in each hive of tens of thousands of bees.
- Watch as the bees come into the hive with different colored plant pollen in the baskets on their legs.
- Take note of how the worker bees (female) communicate with each other, giving directions to the other bees, so they know where to find the nectar they use to make their sweet honey.
- Point out the difference between brood (bees growing in a cell), bee bread, and capped honey.
- Depending on the time of year, we may see drone (male) bees.
- We may even see bees hatching from a cell.
- We might find other insects in the hive, such as small hive beetles, that can stress out the bees and cause them to loose focus on making honey.
- Move frames around in the hive and from hive to hive and reassemble.

We have been keeping bees for over eight years now. We have had as many as 31 hives at one time. Our honey won second place at the New York State Fair the first year we started Bre's Bees. That same year, we bartered one quart of honey for our first three chickens and we never looked back. We have built and sold equipment, hives, and bees and have also been hired to remove bees from homes and businesses over the years. We love beekeeping and teaching others what we know.

Къде ще бъдете

Our home apiary (honeybee farm) is located on the edge of our back three acre field on our 23+ acre property. We will start our journey at our chicken coop saying hello to the ladies then walk down to the hives.
