BEEKEEPING TIP 3 – KEEP THEM ON DISPLAY

A strong hive can run out of space, make queen cells, and swarm in less than two weeks. That’s why inspecting bees regularly from spring to autumn is suggested. An inspection includes opening the hive, checking that the bees have enough space, and physically removing and inspecting each frame of brood. Looking for eggs, larva, capped brood, queen cells, and any signs of stress or diseases. If you don’t see a healthy brood pattern, start looking for the queen. It is recommended to budget 30-45 minutes per hive but it generally doesn’t take that long. You’ll get quicker and more efficient with practice.
