Beekeepers' Resolution For 2015

1. Plan Ahead. This year, decide how you will aggressively keep your mites levels low. In our classes we give you a four part non-chemical approach. The longer you wait to purchase your bees, take a class or buy hives you risk having to wait or totally missing the boat.

2. Resolve To Know As Much As You Can. Take all the classes you can. Attend seminars and conferences. Read books and magazines.

3. Monitor Your Hives Throughout The Winter. Keep Winter-Bee-Kind candy boards on your hives. Last year some beekeepers failed to replace empty WBKs on the hive and the bees starved out. So many hives were low on food going into winter. Resolve to monitor their winter stores of food. Keep mice out. Make sure your entrances are not allowing mice to enter. Mice can destroy your hives. Provide a wind break. Keep something heavy on the top so winter winds do not blow the top off.

4. Resolve To Inspect Your Bees More Often In The Spring And Summer. We recommend inspecting your hive briefly every two weeks in the spring and summer.

5. Resolve To Deal With Issues. If your queen is slacking off, replace her quickly. Prevent swarming. Trap small hive beetles. Keep your bees in their hives during pesticide applications nearby.

Our Winter-Bee-Kinds provides both carbohydrates and protein for your bees and provides upper vent/exit and upper insulation to help reduce excessive condensation. We make them at just the right consistency so that bees can consume the food. You'll notice it is not a hard block of bee food. When you receive it, it will appear moist and sometimes wet so they arrive delicious to bees.
